For the small person

Geoff* lives in rural Queensland and his employment with a local council was terminated after he sustained a workplace injury. 

LawRight organised for K&L Gates and barrister, Donna Callaghan to help Geoff to review a decision of Comcare in the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (the QIRC).  The QIRC made a number of orders in Geoff’s favour including for the payment of wages and entitlements. 

Geoff was very pleased, saying, “Without you people there’s no way that I would’ve got the outcome I did...It showed that the small person can get somewhere.”
