Stuff – Gloriavale residents asked to silence ex-members for new Employment Court hearing
By Joanne Naish – Stuff – 22/08/2022
Gloriavale residents have been asked to consider putting in writing their opposition to former members speaking on their behalf at an upcoming court case.
A survey, titled Gloriavale Members Voice, was created by a resident and has been circulated in the West Coast religious community with the backing of its leaders ahead of a new Employment Court case. It was sent to Stuff by a former member.
An Employment Court ruling in May found several of the Christian community’s businesses used child labour and treated workers as volunteers when they should have been entitled to payment and protection under employment law.
