To make the application to the fund, we petitioned the High Court to wind up the company, had our client’s nominee appointed liquidator and the liquidator in turn was able to make the application and recover the award for our client’s benefit.
This area of employee protection requires urgent review as the process is lengthy and expensive. Employees should be allowed make a direct application to the fund without the necessity of involving the High Court and appointing a liquidator.
