Success In ‘Slave’ Labour Scam
The Christian Heritage Party is pleased to announce that one of the two workers involved in the employment scam story released by CHP on Monday has received a satisfactory settlement offer from his employer, involving a substantial cash settlement and a return air-ticket.
“Credit must go in part to the work of Christchurch Labour Department Inspector Peter Winchester, and publicity from the media,” said John Bryant, CHP’s Executive Director and candidate for Christchurch Central, who brought this issue to light.
“There still remains one other workers claim to be resolved, but I am confident that with the employers further co-operation this case can also be resolved satisfactorily.
“WINZ Policy not to provide a welfare safety net to all New Zealand taxpayers still remains a policy issue to be resolved. The Government’s callous disregard for the rights of temporary migrant workers remains. They and their families remain at risk from Government anti-family policies,” he added.
“The New Zealand Immigration Service
must also review its visa issuing policy to ensure that all
migrant workers are made aware of minimum standards and
conditions for employment in New Zealand, with a list being
provided of appropriate points of contact for lodging
complaints, and the availability of translation services if
necessary,” Mr Bryant
