Catulli Holdings Inc. Fined For Failure to Pay Ex-Employee As Ordered
LONDON, ON - Catulli Holdings Inc., operating as Mr. Dryclean & Alteration, has been fined $3,152 for failure to pay money owed to a terminated employee after having been ordered to do so by a Ministry of Labour employment standards officer. The fine is equal to the amount paid to the former employee, who was owed wages, accrued vacation pay and termination pay in lieu of notice.
Acting on an employment standards claim submitted to the Ministry of Labour, an employment standards officer issued an order to pay wages (OTP) in May 2011 to the employer. The company failed to do so.
The company pleaded guilty on March 31, 2014, to failing to comply with the employment standards officer's order. The matter was put over for the defendant to pay the OTP before sentencing.
The fine was imposed by Justice of the Peace Michael A. Cuthbertson in London court today.
In addition to the fine, the court imposed a 25-per-cent victim fine surcharge as required by the Provincial Offences Act. The surcharge is credited to a special provincial government fund to assist victims of crime.
