Covid 19 Fines and their collection

Erika Whittome made this Official Information request to Ministry of Justice

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Erika Whittome to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Erika Whittome

Dear Ministry of Justice,
I understand Worksafe have issued fines as per this FYI for C19 breaches https://fyi.org.nz/request/19650-covid-1....

A business has 28 days to pay these infringement fees; if payment is not made within 28 days a reminder notice may be issued. Infringement fees that remain unpaid are transferred to the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) for collection or further action.

Regarding these unpaid C19 Breach fines:

1. Where the fines have not been collected by Worksafe and the infringement has been transferred to you, please share the budget spent to date on court appearances and legal costs for these fine collection to date.

2. Please share the budget allocated for this financial year for using the courts to attempt to collect these fines.

Yours faithfully,

Erika Whittome
