Firm in court on health insurance charges

A construction firm was charged today with breaches of the Health Insurance Act and false accounting.

RMS Construction, represented in Magistrates' Court by owner Ricky Sousa, denied dishonestly making $1,100 of deductions from an employee's pay by falsely claiming the money had gone to health insurance.

The firm also denied failing to “effect and continue in force” a contract with a health insurance company and failing to notify an employee that they had no health insurance.

Mr Sousa, 56, earlier denied the same charges against himself.

The matter is expected to return to Magistrates' Court on September 28.
