GP in $574,000 work-from-home case ‘imprudently’ rejected settlement offers: judge

The corporate made four cheaper offers to settle the case.

A GP ordered to pay $574,000 for breaching a six-year contract with a corporate “imprudently” refused four offers to settle the case, a federal court judge says.

The Melbourne GP was 18 months into his contract with Cornerstone Health when he developed avascular necrosis of the talus and asked to work from home using telehealth while he recovered.
