Stolen Generation Class Action

Shine Lawyers has launched legal action on behalf of the Stolen Generations of the Northern Territory who were forcibly removed from their families as children. Although a formal apology has been made, the Commonwealth has refused to pay compensation to members of the Stolen Generation in the Northern Territory, despite their own recommendation to do so. All other states with similar policies have paid compensation to those affected.

Fonterra Class Action

Overview

Litigation Lending has agreed to fund a class action to be run by Adley Burstyner and Harwood Andrews Lawyers on behalf of dairy farmers who suffered financial loss due to Fonterra’s May 2016 decision to announce a ‘step down’ in the farmgate milk price for the Southern Region of the Australian dairy industry.

The class action was commenced in the Supreme Court of Victoria on 17 June 2020 and alleges that Fonterra’s actions in connection with the May 2016 ‘step down’ constitute misleading and deceptive conduct, unconscionable conduct, and a breach of Fonterra’s supply contract.

The action seeks damages for farmers directly affected by Fonterra’s actions, via a full reversal of the price step down, including the related clawbacks and underpayments made to farmers. Compensation for other types of loss is additionally sought, including for the impacts of financial decisions that farmers made relying upon Fonterra’s farmgate price prior to the step down, as well as financial decisions that became necessary after the step down was announced.

If you were a Fonterra supplier and suffered loss due to the May 2016 step down, you may be entitled to compensation. We encourage all Victorian, South Australian and Tasmanian dairy farmers who supplied milk to Fonterra during the 2015/16 season to register their interest in participating in the claim here.

IOOF (ASX: IFL) Class Action - potential

Overview

Litigation Lending has confirmed conditional funding of a proposed shareholder class action, to be run by Shine Lawyers, on behalf of aggrieved IOOF investors who suffered losses from IOOF’s alleged non-disclosure of corporate misconduct, subject to sufficient shareholder interest.

Register your interest in the class action by clicking on the “Register Here” button below, which will take you to Shine Lawyer’s website.

Background to the allegations:

On 20 June 2015, the Sydney Morning Herald published articles regarding alleged misconduct within IOOF. Details of the alleged misconduct identified by Fairfax Media included several allegations of misconduct within IOOF’s research department, which provides services to IOOF’s financial dealer network, managed funds and superannuation funds.

Following the Sydney Morning Herald articles, on 22 June 2015 IOOF’s share price experienced its largest ever single day fall to that point, closing down 13.3%, or $1.42.

On 7 July and 3 August 2015, IOOF’s executives, including its managing director Chris Kelaher, appeared before a Senate hearing to respond to questions about the alleged corporate misconduct. On 7 July 2015, IOOF CEO Chris Kelaher admitted to the Senate hearing that IOOF had not reported serious past allegations of insider trading and front running by IOOF’s senior staff to ASIC. On the day of Mr Kelaher’s admissions to the Senate hearing, IOOF’s share price dropped by another $0.29.

In August 2018 Mr Kelaher and other IOOF executives were questioned again, this time by the Banking Royal Commission. During questioning, it was revealed that IOOF’s Questor subsidiary had allegedly disadvantaged members of a super fund compared to private investors. Following Mr Kelaher’s appearance IOOF’s share price dropped by a further 6%.

Mr Kelaher ultimately resigned from IOOF following APRA’s commencement of proceedings against IOOF in relation to its treatment of super fund members as disclosed in the Banking Royal Commission. The APRA action was ultimately unsuccessful.​

As of mid-February 2020 IOOF is trading at $7.05, almost 34% below its share price immediately prior to the Sydney Morning Herald articles published on 20 June 2015.

If you purchased IOOF shares between 1 March 2014 and 7 July 2015 (inclusive), please register your interest in the proposed class action.

Tandem Class Action

Overview

Shine Lawyers, with funding support from Litigation Lending, has launched a class action against ISG Management Pty Ltd (ISGM), a subsidiary of Tandem Corporation, on behalf of telecommunication workers who, since 2011, suffered financial losses after entering into sub-contracting arrangements with ISGM.

In the action, Shine Lawyers will allege, amongst other things, that:

The sub-contracting arrangements between workers and ISGM breach the Fair Work Act and Independent Contractors Act in that ISGM misrepresented to workers that they were employed as sub-contractors rather than employees; and

That ISGM took advantage of the ‘Australian Apprenticeships Access Program’, a tax payer funded scheme, to train workers to provide telecommunications sub-contracting services to ISGM, working on the Telstra network amongst other things.

If you have suffered losses due to the alleged misrepresentations of ISGM you may be entitled to compensation. The team of class action lawyers at Shine have brought an 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

Registration

We encourage all telecommunication workers who, since 2011, provided telecommunications technician services to ISGM, purportedly as independent contractors, to register their interest in participating in the claim here.
