Four cleaners are pleading with the Auckland school they’ve worked at for the past six years to let them keep their jobs, TVNZ reports. The cleaners, whose contract was not renewed by their employers, felt hurt and betrayed when the cleaning contract was awarded to a franchisor instead. Under Part 6A of the Employment Relations Act 2000, special protection is given to specific workers like cleaners when an employer’s business is restructured and work is assigned to a new employer.
