    Wineries are being given the hard word on exploiting workers

    Wineries are being given the hard word on exploiting workers

    10 January 2019
    Marlborough vineyard contracting company, Double Seven Services, and its owner, have been penalised 127-thousand-dollars for falsifying and failing to keep wage and leave records for 199 migrant workers.

    It's the second exploitation case in two months.

    Employment Relations Authority inspectorate viticulture sector lead, Kevin Finnegan, says it's essential wine businesses check their supply chains for exploitative labour practices - including wine labelling.

    He says it can have devastating effects on a company's reputation, with investors potentially exiting the industry because of bad social practices.
