TVNZ has an article about Novopay, I swear to go it must have been written by an embedded union flunky. Look at this:
A new bug in the beleaguered Novopay system could see education staff sacked at the end of the school term.
The glitch is threatening to terminate contracts on April 21, many of them the contracts of permanent teaching staff.
Epsom Girls Grammar School is among the affected schools, with 21 staff members scheduled for termination.
Really? A software system can over-ride legal and statutory obligations, not to mention contractual employment conditions and unilaterally “sack” staff. What a load of horseshit. However it doesn’t get any better.
