Beyer says 90 day law got her sacked – a year before it came into force!

July 31st, 2014 at 3:00 pm by David Farrar

NewstalkZB reports:

Mana candidate is claiming to have fallen foul of the Government’s 90-day trial period laws before they were officially in place.

She’s told reporters it happened in 2010 when she worked at Michael Hill Jewellers in Masterton when she expressed an interest in running for local government.

“The manager in the shops that have said, ‘oh, well OK, if you’re not going to be hanging round by the end of the year because you might be the mayor of Masterton, you’d better give me your resignation now, citing the 90 day trial’.”

However legislation enabling that specific employment law for adult employees did not take effect until April 2011 – well after the time she says she lost her job.

Caught out big time.

    You would not need a 90 day law to sack Beyer. Even Helen Clark sacked her. The Good tolerant people of Wairarapa elected her. This showed great tolerance. Beyer achieved little except getting elected. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    Don’t believe her. If that really happened she would have gone to the Employment Relations Authority and she would have won a big award.

    Michael Hill managers need to publicly respond to this given Beyer is standing for election, and voters have the right to test her credibility.

    Wasn’t it Georgina Beyer who had a little bleat after she “retired” in 2007 that Labour hadn’t given her any plum board appointments or other places at the public trough? I seem to recall she was appalled at that point she might actually have to get a job. I guess Michael Hill couldn’t see much “can do” in her attitude or work ethic.

    Labour’s latest two policies;

    1) increase the minimum cost of employment
    2) increase the risk of hiring

    Talk about low income worker bashing.

    What would all you Labour voters out there think of a policy that placed a levy on those earning the minimum wage and just above it? The levy would be about $2 an hour, and the money would go directly to the government as tax income.

    How do you think the employers would react to that?

    How is that any different to the minimum wage?

    The benefits of increasing the minimum wage are paid for by the poorest people in the country.

    @ Kimble – even though none of my 50-plus staff are on minimum wage, I reckon the rise to $16.25 will cost my businesses around $90-100k per annum. When the minimum wage goes up, everyone else in the business is going to expect a pay rise, and they’d have a strong case.

    The only problem is that there’s not a spare $90-100k per annum in the businesses to pay them. Do I ask for volunteers to be made redundant or have their hours cut, or do I go to the bank on bended knees and borrow more? Or do I just take the easy way out and sell up?

    No; that’s not an option either, because Labour’s Capital Gains Tax will slug me on a business my wife and I have built up from nothing. Labour; the business-friendly party. There’s a tag for a Tui billboard.

    Just saw her on TV bleating that the World owed her a living.
    A few questions- If she was such an amazing success story and such a supremely talented politician surely she would find some kind of job??
    And- Where did all her money go from her ‘amazing’ career??
    Also- I thought retired MP’s got a healthy pension?

    Any clarification on any of these points greatly appreciated..

    I suspect like all Labour MP’s from the corrupt Clark era she was told that there would be cosy jobs available or perhaps even a seat or two on a board when she finished her term. A good example of this was that hopeless MP from Hamilton (Pettis I think her name was) who was given a plumb position on a board she had absolutely no qualifications to be on.

    Those MP’s would have had no reason to save, they would have been promised that the gravy train would keep running.

Seriously, how many former MP’s are now on the dole and living in Housing NZ accommodation? Only Labour could produce such a phenomenon. And only Mana would celebrate and embrace such an achievement. One way or another, we will be paying this one till they nail the lid shut.

    One of the sad parts about Jamie Whyte is that if he had been speaking to her he would have sympathised with her about being a victim of the 90 day trial period law. And then he would have had her verify that what she said happened before the 2010 local body elections. He would have sought that verification in a kindly understanding manner.
    Then when she verified it, he would have quoted the date that law came into force and made her feel one centimetre tall; just like he did to Ururoa Flavell.
    Whyte has an incredible intellect and he is able, in a most kindly manner, to show left wing scum how absolutely and totally fuckin useless the cnuts are.
    No other political party has a person to match him.
    But people won’t vote for him because they much prefer grizzling to getting good people in the House.

    That the law didn’t apply doesn’t mean someone might not have cited it.
    As I understand correctly it applied to workplaces with less than 20 employees. then it was decided to be extended to others in mid 2010. So an employer that it did not apply to might have thought it applied to them or thought that, the dubious employee they had could be put off by such a threat. (and the way it is stated sounds somewhat consistent with that).

    However given that I don’t have a lot of reason to believe a politician making this sort of personal anecdote, I’d be inclined to believe the various Wairarapa posters above.
