What is the claim about?

The landmark decision in Searle v The Commonwealth of Australia, 2019, held that enlisted men could enforce contracts against the military, if only for compensation (not for specific performance of the contract).

Sydney firm, Levitt Robinson is the firm behind the successful outcome in Searle, has become aware of another common grievance among military personnel, namely that a large number of new recruits were induced to sign up to sensitive jobs (e.g. signals, encryption), all of which require Security Clearance.

While you reasonably expected that a Security Clearance would be forthcoming within six (6) months, some of you were kept on “trainee” wages for several years before a Security Clearance was granted.

While this might have been understandable if Police Checks and Security Clearances ordinarily took that long, the experience in Australia has been that even migrants and refugees can obtain a Security Clearance in much less time than many of you have been waiting.

Additionally, since so many of you are under the age of twenty-five (25), it beggars belief that a Security Clearance for young adults could take, in some cases, years – and cost enlisted men and women so much in lost time, wages and promotional opportunity.

If this happened to you in the last six (6) years, then you may be entitled to compensatory damages from the Commonwealth Government, for having unjustly had to wait so long.

We note that many of you were so disillusioned by the delay that you quit.

Others have become depressed, frustrated and angry and on reasonable grounds, too.
