A woman who worked a full shift only to be told afterwards that it was a trial has been awarded nearly $9000 in court.
The woman worked a shift at a café in Wellington, New Zealand, following an interview, believing she would be paid.
However when she asked if her employers would like her bank details, she was told it was an unpaid trial.
She was offered the job but when she insisted the café pay her for the day’s work, they rescinded the offer.
New Zealand’s Employment Relations Authority awarded the woman $7000 compensation as well as $1890for four weeks’ notice and $119.07 for her work performed.
