Welcome to our first Stolen Wages Settlement email update.
You are receiving this email as you have registered as a claimant (workers under the Stolen Wages practices) or registered representative (for deceased claimants) for the Stolen Wages Class Action and have provided your email address as part of the registration process. We will be sending you regular email updates on the progress of the settlement, so please contact us if you change your email address. If you know of a claimant or registered representative that hasn’t provided their email address, please ask them to contact the Stolen Wages Information Centre (see contact details below).
In September 2019, the Queensland Government agreed to settle the Stolen Wages Class Action for $190 million and the settlement was approved by the Federal Court on 17 January 2020. The Settlement Distribution Scheme sets out how the settlement monies are to be paid and Anthony Beven and Tony Jonsson from Grant Thornton in Cairns have been appointed to administer the scheme.
Registrations for the Stolen Wages Settlement monies are now closed and no late applications can be accepted.
