The issues relate to employee entitlements under employment legislation, in particular the Holidays Act 2003. This legislation is complex and open to interpretation, and like many other companies, we have incorrectly calculated some leave pay.
The specific areas that we need to fix date back to 07 November 2010 and are primarily related to the payment of statutory holidays, the rate of payment for annual, sick and bereavement leave, and the way we calculated your fortnightly payroll payments. In addition, some staff may have been underpaid when their salaries are compared to entitlements under the Minimum Wages Act.
We are contacting impacted former staff who are impacted to advise any amount owed.
Those eligible for an arrears payment were permanent or fixed term employees at Velthuis Farms for a time period between November 2010 and 31 August 2017.
If you think you may be eligible, and you don’t believe we have your correct contact details, please get in touch with us by calling 0800 729 001 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
