Two directors of Aadvanced Merchandising, of Oakville, Ont., were convicted and fined $3,000 each in the Ontario Court of Justice for failing to comply with a Ministry of Labour order to pay wages owed to a worker.

The conviction came after the ministry investigated a claim by an employee of Aadvanced Merchandising for 121 hours of unpaid wages in September 2004. The ministry issued an order to pay $1,661.82, including a $151 administration fee.
