New section 22C (effect of replacing an enforcement notice on penalties)
321.Subsection (1) makes it clear that this new section only applies where an officer has issued a new enforcement notice which states that section 22A(3) does not apply. Subsection (2) states that the withdrawal of the old enforcement notice does not affect any penalty notice served in connection with the old notice.
322.Subsection (3) has the effect, however, that the existing penalty notice will automatically fall if it includes an amount in respect of non-compliance in respect of a worker and the amount could not validly have been included if the old enforcement notice had been as it should have been according to the new one. Subsection (4) allows officers to issue replacement penalty notices in these circumstances.
