The husband of a woman whose arm was severed in a workplace incident is suing the businesses responsible.
Kelvin Khong filed an application for compensation with the Magistrates Court relating to his suffering.
His wife, a 25-year-old Malaysian woman, was working as a cleaner on a Myrrhee farm on March 16, 2016 when her arm became caught in a hop processing auger.
The woman’s husband has applied for compensation from Ellerslie Hops and cleaning company SPTC Services.
Lawyers told Wangaratta Magistrates Court on Thursday that legal documents and medical evidence had been sent to the businesses, but they were waiting on their legal representatives.
The case was adjourned until August.
