A Labour Inspectorate has investigated an employer and found him to be in breach of several employment laws. The employer failed to pay his employees the minimum wage and incorrectly paid his employees for working on public holidays. The employer gave the employees an extra $50 instead of their minimum employment entitlements.

The employer also failed to maintain records of his employees’ hours and failed to keep copies of their employment agreements.

The Employment Relations Authority ordered the employer to pay $23,000 in penalties for his employment law breaches plus $64,000 in arrears to the employees.
