With deep sympathy and sadness, we inform you that our client, Mr Wayne Preedy,
passed away unexpectedly on Saturday 25 January 2020.
He leaves behind his wife Nicky, and his three children, Tom, James and Georgia.
We’ve had the pleasure of working with Wayne since 2012. His case now stands as a leading authority on whole person impairment (WPI) combination under the Return to Work Act.
It was a significant journey for him and his case is now his legacy.
In our last update on 19 November 2019, we advised of the judgment of Deputy President Judge Calligeros of the South Australian Employment Tribunal (SAET)
Just prior to Christmas, RTWSA appealed the decision and the matter was to be listed for a further SAET Full Bench appeal.
RTWSA has been notified of Mr Preedy’s passing and is in the process of taking advice about whether it will pursue the appeal against his estate. As soon as we have an update we will let you know.
In the meantime, we pay our respects to Wayne who was one of our favourite clients and who over the last seven years became our good friend. We will miss him and his good cheer.
We send our love to his family.
