Israel Folau commences court proceedings against Rugby Australia and the NSW Waratahs
MELBOURNE, 31 July 2019: Israel Folau today confirmed he has commenced court proceedings against his former employers Rugby Australia and the NSW Waratahs.
The rugby star said while he had hoped to achieve a settlement during the parties’ conciliation before the Fair Work Commission, he was left with no choice but to commence court action.
“Unfortunately, our conciliation before the Fair Work Commission did not resolve the matters between us and I have been left with no choice but to commence court action.
“I have been blessed to have received the support of tens of thousands of Australians throughout my journey, and I want to say thank you to everyone who has offered their prayers and support. It has meant so much to Maria and me over the last few months and gives us strength for the road ahead,” Mr Folau concluded.
