This notice should be submitted in writing to the Minister within 21 days of the date the redundancy takes effect. Persons who contravene this regulation can be liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding $250,000, up to 3 months imprisonment or both a fine and imprisonment.

This is a message from the Ministry of Labour & Social Security.
