A pressing family emergency in India caused an unfortunate and temporary hiatus of this client from his employment in NZ. While he was back in India, he was under the impression that he would reclaim his previous full-time position upon his return to NZ. Unfortunately, this did not happen as he was asked to do casual work instead. As a result, he had to look for another job which unintentionally breached his then visa conditions.
Note: The client and Simon never once met in person and conducted all communications through our advanced IT system. It was due to the restrictions on travelling and meetings because of Covid-19. However, when the restrictions got lifted, our firm decided to continue the no face to face meeting policy after we found out it was more practical and efficient.
