On 18 March 2020, Shine Lawyers won its first hurdle in this case, with Federal Court Judge Justice Bromberg rejecting ISGM’s application to de-class the action.
“Justice Bromberg’s decision will allow us to move forward with our action and continue to work towards bringing justice to over 3,000 technicians who we say were misled into thinking they had actually been engaged by ISGM through a sub-contracting model” said Class Action Practice Leader Vicky Antzoulatos.
What is the ISG Management Class Action about?
ISG Management Pty Ltd (ISGM) is a workforce management company that holds contracts with Telstra, Foxtel and NBN Co amongst others. ISGM is a subsidiary of Tandem Corporation, one of Australia’s largest private companies.
Shine Lawyers allege that since at least 2011 ISGM has misrepresented the true nature of their engagement with thousands of telecommunication technicians in breach of the Commonwealth Fair Work Act (2009) (FWA). The central question in the case is whether telecommunication workers who purportedly entered into sub-contracting arrangements with ISGM were actually employees of ISGM.
If you have suffered losses due to the alleged misrepresentations of ISGM you may be entitled to compensation. Our class action lawyers have launched this class action against ISGM on behalf of thousands of telecommunication workers, including vulnerable unemployed, homeless and indigenous Australians, and can advise you of your legal rights and options.
