Burmese man who spent eight years in direct provision has unanimously won his Supreme Court appeal over the legal ban preventing him from working.
In a significant decision, the seven judge Supreme Court today unanimously found in favour of the man but adjourned the matter for six months to allow the legislature consider how to address the situation.
The court found that, in principle, the ban in the Refugee Act on asylum seekers seeking employment, is contrary to the constitutional right to seek employment.
