The Employment Relations Authority has penalised the director of a company that failed to supply wage and time records and copies of Employment Agreements over $20,000.  This penalty is to be paid personally by the director. 

$4,400 unpaid wages was because the company had failed to pay minimum wage rates to its employees, $15,000 penalty for failure to pay minimum wages and $2,000 penalty for failure to supply wage and time records and employment agreements.

In setting the penalties the ERA took into account that the Labour Inspector had given the employer several opportunities to supply the requested wage and time and employment agreement records and he had offered to do so on two occasions but failed to provide any records.
