Labour Inspectors make sure that employers operate within the law in relation minimum entitlements – that is things like minimum wages, annual leave, and public holidays. They can take action to enforce minimum standards through the Employment Relations Authority.
If you believe you are receiving less than your legal minimum entitlements then ideally, you should discuss this with your employer first to give them a chance to put things right. If this discussion gets you nowhere then you can contact a Labour Inspector. It won’t cost you anything to get their help. You can contact a Labour Inspector by calling the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (previously called the Department of Labour) on 0800 20 90 20.
