Six former Gloriavale women who claim they lived in slave-like conditions and worked under a regime of total control will have their case heard by the Employment Court from today.

The hearing before chief judge Christina Inglis is set down for four weeks, with 20 witnesses expected to give evidence for the plaintiffs.
