NZ businesses fined thousands over sloppy paperwork

From Morning Report, 8:14 am on 8 November 2017

Businesses across the country have been stung with hundreds of thousands of dollars of fines for exploiting staff and failing to keep proper employment records. The Labour Inspectorate says most of the cases involve migrant workers. Figures given to RNZ show the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment has issued 370-thousand-dollars worth of fines and nearly 130 notices since July last year, and it expects those figures to increase.
