Tax-evading businesswoman made migrant graduate pay $90k in exchange for employment, residency reference

Desperate to make a life for himself in New Zealand, Wang submitted hundreds of job applications before being offered a role as the bookkeeper for Gill’s business.

The only catch was that the young graduate was required to pay her a sum of $90,000 in exchange for the job. In return, Wang would also be allowed to use his new boss as a reference to assist with gaining residency.

Woman in Auckland awarded $25,000 after boss calls her 'f***ing hopeless'

A woman whose employer told her she was “f***ing hopeless and “f***ing stupid” and was subjected to a number of incidents of workplace bullying has been awarded $25,000 in compensation and lost wages.

Indian priests say they have been exploited by employer

Two Indian priests (or granthi) say they have been exploited since coming to work in New Zealand, earning just $2000 and $1000 respectively for six months’ work.

Employment law advocate May Moncur is acting on behalf of the two men and has come across similar cases involving the Sikh community. “We’re trying our best to make sure that this doesn’t happen in the future by highlighting those cases, so the employers think twice before they’re trying to take advantage of the religious workers who are not aware of their rights.”

Chinese migrant workers: ‘We’ve been cheated’

A group of migrant Chinese workers say they are still waiting for new visas and some are still looking for work after falling victim to a scam.

Auckland restaurant worker awarded $20k after Covid-19 wage subsidy dispute turns sour

An Auckland restaurant has been ordered to pay $19,000 in compensation after unjustifiably dismissing a waiter whose husband questioned whether she was paid correctly following a Covid-19 wage subsidy claim.

The Employment Relations Authority (ERA) has found that Penrose business Good Food Vibes, trading as Big Fish Eatery, unjustifiably dismissed casual worker Alexis Dietz​ after the nationwide lockdown in 2020.

 Good Food Vibes must pay Dietz $1939 in lost wages and $19,000 in compensation.

女针灸师:被裁员后雇主用其名额申请工资补贴

一位女针灸师表示,她得知雇主将其裁员后,又用她的名额申请工资补贴非常震惊。

这位自称姓Wang的女士不愿意透露全名,她说自己是在3月23日星期一,也就是总理宣布全国封锁那天被裁员的。当时她被叫到经理办公室,签了一份裁员信,信中没有提到新冠疫情,只是说针灸诊所无法吸引到足够客人,只能保留一个针灸师。因为Wang是后来被聘请的,所以雇主告诉她要离开。

Wang说自己完全没有准备好,非常担心自己是否能熬过封锁期。而这个时候她又被另一个经理叫去签了一份文件。Wang说当时自己还在震惊中,还以为这是和裁员有关的文件,就稀里糊涂的签了。
