Payout to assaulted prison guard a 'landmark decision'

From Morning Report, 8:18 am on 1 October 2018

A $56,000 payout to a Corrections prison officer left traumatised by an inmate's attack is being hailed as a landmark decision. The Employment Relations Authority has found the Department of Corrections didn't do enough to stop the assault happening in the first place, and then failed to adequately help the man deal with his mental suffering.
