On the face of it some action does seem to be desirable to ensure that
exploitation of workers is dealt with quickly, but some concerns:
1. The justice system should not need such priorities - are not larger
valued disputes just as important? If a case can be heard by a small
claims tribunal, should that not be sufficient?

2. Some sales of a business are legitimate; a pending sale may have
prompted an employee to seek advice and that is what may have
triggered a complaint. Limited liability needs to be considered.

3. Should there be more public sector investigative staff looking at
the management of small companies - are employers hiding underpayments
from IRD?

After 6 days they managed to get 100 signatures. Sounds about right for a dingbat petition launched by a bunch of weirdos.
