Australian government and G4S hit with multiple lawsuits from Manus Island staff
27 December 2018
The Australian government and the security giant it contracts to secure offshore detention centres, G4S, are facing a raft of lawsuits alleging staff were put at risk while working on Papua New Guinea’s Manus Island, suffering physical and psychological harm during riots.
At least four cases have been filed to Victoria’s supreme court by different law firms alleging that staff at the Australian-run detention centre, including security guards and managers, were not provided with a safe workplace, and that the Australian government and G4S failed in their duty of care.
