Robodebt Class Action

In November 2019 Gordon Legal launched the Robodebt Class Action on behalf of the many thousands of people who were issued with a ‘Robodebt’ by Centrelink. Recipients of Robodebts are Group Members in this class action.

The Robodebt Class Action is arguing that all people who paid money, or had money taken from them, as repayment for a Robodebt should be compensated by the Respondent to the claim, the Commonwealth of Australia.

If you have received a notice in your MyGov account regarding the Robodebt Class Action, we encourage you to read the Robodebt Class Action FAQ page and to register your interest with Gordon Legal.  

If you have not yet received a notice in your MyGov account regarding the Robodebt Class Action, you may still be a Group Member. Please also read the FAQ page for more information.

Box Hill Institute Student Pilot Class Action

Gordon Legal acts on behalf of a number of students who enrolled in the Diploma of Aviation (Commercial Pilot Licence – Aeroplane) course (CPL Diploma course) offered by Box Hill Institute (BHI) and which was conducted by it in conjunction with Gobel Aviation Pty Ltd (Soar).

Our clients have raised a number of concerns about the CPL Diploma course and whether BHI has delivered the diploma course as promised.  Many of our clients have incurred tens of thousands of dollars in course fees to BHI via the VET Student Loan Scheme.

Gordon Legal commenced a class action proceeding against BHI on behalf of a number of representative plaintiffs and the class of group members defined in the Statement of Claim on 26 March 2020.

FAQ

A class action is a way for groups of people to obtain compensation or redress under our legal system by running multiple cases simultaneously.

A minimum of seven people are required, and they must be affected by the same proposed defendant.

To launch a class action you need:

  • Seven or more people with the same claim
  • That claim to be about the same issue or circumstance and
  • That it relates to at least one common issue of law or fact.

Peter has fought and won the following landmark class actions:

  • Breast implant class action
  • Medically acquired HIV class action
  • Thalidomide.

If you believe you have an issue that may be the basis of a claim, you should give us a call today for a chat on 1300 57 25 18.

The important thing to know is that we can help you on a no win, no fee basis.  That means no up-front legal fees to worry about.

The above information is related to claims in Victoria. For claims outside the state, please contact our office for specific information as potential claims and time frames vary from state to state.

How we can help you:

Our Senior Partner, Peter Gordon, is one of Australia’s most prominent class actions lawyers.

He is a passionate advocate for using the law to help everyday people when they have been wronged by big corporations with nearly unlimited resources to defend claims.

During his career he has taken on big tobacco, achieved landmark wins for people exposed to asbestos, fought for victims of sexual abuse by members of the Catholic Church, for sufferers of medically-acquired HIV as well and for women over faulty breast implants.

It is this sense of justice for everyday people that led Peter to start Gordon Legal in 2010, so he could seek compensation for thalidomide survivors who had been denied claims over the years.

Peter was able to secure a significant settlement for these families, finally getting them justice and in doing so, financial security for many of these families. That win represents what Gordon Legal’s class actions are about; fighting for people that have been wronged by the system. This is what drives Peter and all of our other lawyers at Gordon Legal.
