Last year, Levitt Robinson Solicitors helped to uncover the serious exploitation of 7-Eleven workers and franchisee operators. Now, this work has been recognised by Australia’s most prestigious journalism foundation, the Walkley Awards for Excellence in Journalism.
For her bold reporting on the 7-Eleven “wage scam” for Fairfax Media and ABC’s Four Corners program, Adele Ferguson has secured a nomination in the All Media Business Journalism category for her story “7-Eleven: The Price of Convenience”, which prominently featured an interview with Levitt Robinson’s Stewart Levitt.
The Fairfax Media multimedia team were recognised along with Ferguson for their multimedia storytelling “7-Eleven is ripping of its workers”.
Mr Levitt congratulated Fairfax Media and Adele Ferguson on their reporting, saying, “The nomination is well-deserved, and we are proud to have worked with such outstanding reporters in bringing this important story to light.”
“Thanks to the investigative work of Adele Ferguson, the Fairfax Media team and Four Corners, ABC TV, we have made a lot of headway towards delivering justice for the exploited workers, but there is still more work to be done.”
Levitt Robinson is running a proposed class action for 7-Eleven Franchises. Please refer to our website for details. http://levittrobinson.com/7-eleven-class-action/
