Thu, 05 Jul 2012 1:12p.m.
The small Auckland security company which employed a man killed on his first night on the job as a security guard will fight a charge brought against it by the Department of Labour.
Charanpreet Singh Dhaliwal, 22, was found dead from serious head injuries early on November 18 last year at a construction site in Henderson, west Auckland.
Waitakere man Hateni Kaufusi Latu, 27, has been charged with his murder.
After Latu was charged the then Department of Labour laid a health and safety charge against the company Mr Dhaliwal had started working for, CNE Security.
The charge relates to employers ensuring the safety of workers.
In Waitakere District Court on Thursday CNE Security pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The case will return to court on October 15 for a status hearing.
CNE is based in Ellerslie and was set up in 2004. It employs two full-time and four part-time staff.
