Statement from National Personnel Limited

For immediate release – Statement from National Personnel Limited

National Personnel Limited (NPL) is releasing comments in response to news reports from some employees.

Some news reports that NPL have charged these employees $150 per week in rent are completely false. NPL has not charged or received rent or utility charges (e.g. electricity) from some employees who have stayed at NPL’s accommodation.

NPL has proactively offered alternative accommodation for the employees and has worked with other employees to find their own accommodation. NPL has no obligation to provide accommodations to its workers . On compassionate grounds, NPL estimates it has provided over$25,000 of free accommodation to these employees.

A group of employees refused to leave the property, and they allowed additional people who were not NPL employees to stay. This caused overcrowding.

Some allegations have been made that NPL seized some employees’ passports; this is not correct. NPL followed advice from the Police to remove belongings and store them in a safe place.

NPL will be making no further comment.
