The Employment Court has fined an employer for failing to comply with an Employment Relations Authority order for payment of holiday pay ($1,568).  The employer indicated it would pay the holiday pay but failed to do so.  The Court imposed a fine of $8,000, payable to the Crown, plus costs.

A relatively small liability has grown in size by over 500% and the original debt still has to be paid. It pays to deal with these liabilities as ignoring them can get very costly.
