Union whistleblower Kathy Jackson declares bankruptcy

CORRUPTION whistleblower Kathy Jackson has declared herself bankrupt ahead of a Federal Court hearing due to commence today. Hall Chadwick's Paul Leroy has consented to act as Jackson's trustee in bankruptcy.

In the Federal Court in Melbourne, lawyers from the Health Services Union were to pursue allegations Jackson misused $1.4 million in union funds whilst employed as the HSU's East Branch executive president. Jackson denies the allegations but does not have sufficient funds to defend the claim.

Her decision to declare bankruptcy comes after she recently lost a Victoria WorkCover claim, lodged last year, for hundreds of thousands of dollars in worker's compensation benefits backdated to 2012.
