Kim Dotcom has been ordered to pay more than $26,000 in unpaid wages to former staff.
Three of Dotcom’s former employees claimed they were unfairly dismissed by the internet entrepreneur, and took their cases to the Employment Relations Authority (ERA).
In the ruling released Monday, ERA member James Crichton upheld two of the complaints and dismissed the third.
Pan Filo Orduna, John Tactaquin and Ruth Relleve worked for Dotcom from 2010 onwards.
The authority upheld Orduna and Tactaquin’s cases but dismissed Relleve’s.
Orduna was employed by Dotcom as a butler six days a week. …
Crichton said he was satisfied that Orduna and Tactaquin had been unfairly dismissed and so awarded each three months’ salary of the difference between what they were earning when working for Dotcom and what they were earning in their new jobs.
This equated to $8850 for Orduna and $17,526 for Tactaquin.
Will the Mana Party be commenting on this court ruling?
