The sued advocate strikes back

Updated: Apr 12



In 2017 and 2018, Rangiura Trust Board (rest home) had a severe bullying problem and about a dozen employees engaged the services of employment advocacy company Culturesafe NZ Ltd. The fallout included the replacement of the General Manager and the suing of Culturesafe and its director.

This is far from resolved and there are now two fresh proceedings in the High Court. Rangiura (RPW) applied to have Culturesafe placed in liquidation, and Culturesafe’s director is suing the members of Rangiura Trust Board, its external firm and two of its partners for deceit, fraud, conspiracy to defraud and knowing assistance.


We understand that a failure to deal with payroll fraud and gagging of whistleblowers (of which bullying was an apparent symptom) has been alleged.
