Coles-Myer sued over workplace injury.

At a later stage it was recommended that it would be more beneficial, for the checkout ‘chick’ to deliver the monies personally, again usually requiring a journey up a flight of stairs.

During this recommendation, theres was neglect in realising that there might be an occupation, health and safety issue, regarding weight and or manner in which these sums of monies are carried.

During one such incident a checkout employee was injured during one such transfer of monies. As a result of this a court case became pending, and subsequently a sum of money was awarded to the individual.

Hi, I hope your site is the right place to ask this question; I would like to know how long after my accident do I have to make a claim
