The faith business: Scientology in NZ - 2008-02-15
Convinced, Yong joined the church, signed up for a $700 business management course and spent hundreds more on Scientology literature. But within two months his longest-serving employee had quit because of harassment by Wenborn, who had persuaded Yong she was "draining his life-force". Yong landed before the Employment Relations Authority (ERA) and in 2006 was fined $13,000 for unjustified dismissal. Wenborn has returned to Australia, but other members are still hounding Yong. "They never stop," he says. "I kick one out and another comes in."
