Newshub – Former Gloriavale resident ‘ecstatic’ following landmark Employment Court ruling
By Michael Morrah – Newshub – 10/05/2022
A former Gloriavale resident is “ecstatic” following a ruling that found three leavers from the Christian community are actually classed as employees.
For decades, Gloriavale has relied on child labour to ensure the success of its businesses. But Chief Employment Court Judge Christina Inglis has found three young men who worked there from the age of six were employees, not volunteers.
The ruling has cleared the way for intervention by government agencies and it has ramifications for hundreds of young people still living there.
