Reasonable Standard of Dress Required!

16 November 2017

Jane from Grey Lynn Returned Service Club shares their success with offering shirts to those who do not meet the clubs dress code.

Those numbers look likely to increase if the Labour Government moves forward in doubling the number of labour inspectors over the next three years. Unsurprisingly it is the hospitality and horticulture industries which are tagged as the worst record keeping offenders.
