An Auckland construction company has been fined $6,000 by the Employment Relations Authority (ERA) for poor record keeping of employment records.
The ERA found that the company did not keep compliant wage, time, holiday, or leave records or provide employees with employment agreements. As from 1 April 2011, all employers must have a written employment agreement for every one of their employees.
This decision highlights how important it is for small businesses to keep good employment records or face the risk of a reasonably high fine.
