Further victims come forward
Since Mr Moor’s story appeared, another seven firefighters have contacted Turner Freeman Lawyers, seeking legal help for allegations of workplace abuse.
Mr Moor is suing Fire & Rescue NSW in the Supreme Court for more than $1 million in lost earnings. Mr Moor, who suffered a humiliating initiation ceremony in the late 1980s and ongoing physical and mental bullying from his workmates at Castlereagh Street, had a mental breakdown in 2007.
A former firefighter revealed photographs of another firefighter who was abused and humiliated at the same fire station.
“This behaviour was clearly systemic, leaving most of these victims scarred for life,” solicitor Sally Gleeson said.
