Hans Pearson v State of Queensland
Mr Hans Pearson has brought a case in the Federal Court against the Queensland Government on behalf of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who weren’t paid all their wages between 1939 and 1972. The Queensland Government is defending the case.
The case is called a “class action” because Mr Pearson is bringing the case for everyone like him who was not given all his or her pay.
Mr Pearson’s lawyers are Bottoms English Lawyers and are helping him run the case.
