Decision to Decline my Application to Work as a Contractor while Bankrupt - ID 880015

Jeremy Hayes made this Official Information request to Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Jeremy Hayes

Dear Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment,
I would like to get all internal communication regarding the decision (letter received 24/4/2017) about why my application for work was declined.

I would also like to get details on the following:
- how a decision is made regarding whether someone will or won't make reparations
- if they are required to make reparations what formula is used to calculate the sum based
an average surplus (after rent and bills are paid but not food and travel) of $1000 p/w.
- how an living allowance is calculated as per the above scenario
- whether this would be different for a permanent employee vs a contractor as per the
scenario above
- what are considered luxury vs essential items
- why a contractor has to apply for permission to work again at the end of every contract,
given the form is exactly the same as the original one and the amount of time it takes to
get approval (6 to 8 weeks so far). This means if I want to pay rent etc. I have work in
breach until a decision is made, which is then used against me in my application to
work.
- What the expected timeline for processing an application is
- how the new tax laws for contractors will impact Insolvency Trustees view of what a
contractor is, e.g. more aligned to a permanent employee rather than or business or
status quo. If status quo the reasoning behind it.
- How I change the current case manager.

Yours faithfully,

Jeremy Hayes (880015)
