An employee who worked for a roofing company and resigned has had her personal grievance claim for money owed by the employer upheld by the Employment Relations Authority.

The ERA held that the employee was not an independent contractor. The employee did daily office work for the employer and submitted timesheets, not invoices, for the hours worked on a regular basis.  The employee was also paid wages regularly from which PAYE was deducted.

The ERA awarded over $2,330 for notice, annual leave and one day statutory holiday owing to her by the employer.
