Formatted abstract
The exploitative practices by employers that led to the situation of 'stolen wages' of Indigenous Australians, which denied them their rightful employment wages during the 19th and 20th centuries are discussed, as also the legal efforts undertaken by the Indigenous people to rectify the situation. It is suggested that anti-discrimination legislation should be used when considering the resolution of the relevant cases instead of the breach of fiduciary duty clause being used currently.
