Free hearing loss tests

Think you might have suffered hearing loss or want to get your hearing checked?

Maurice Blackburn will host free hearing checks on our 18 November RDO. Checks will be undertaken by hearing experts at the CFMEU (Elizabeth Street) and will take about 15 minutes. 

To book your appointment, please call 9341 3448 (limited spots available).

Where there’s hearing loss, Maurice Blackburn can bring a claim for compensation and will coordinate hearing aids for you (if applicable). Most claims are run no win, no fee*. 

Member benefits also include a free first consultation for legal advice for you and your family, meaning it doesn't cost you anything to find out where you stand.

With 13 permanent offices across Victoria, and a further 26 visiting offices, there's a local lawyer close to you who can provide you with advice.  

About Maurice Blackburn

Fairness is a universal right, not just for the chosen few.

If the right to be heard, be free, be safe or be equal is compromised for one person, then we risk everyone’s rights, too. Because a society that’s unjust to others, is a society that’s unjust to all. From the time we were founded by trade unionist and lawyer Maurice Blackburn in 1919, we have had a strong commitment to workers’ rights and social justice.

In 1919, Maurice Blackburn – a man whose sense of civil liberty was ahead of his time – set the course for social justice in Australia. In the time since, his law firm has contributed to some of Australia’s most influential legal decisions, from the 40-hour week and equal pay for women and Indigenous workers, to the fight against patenting of human genes and the largest class action settlement in Australian history. And the legacy grows as we continue to protect the exploited, free the wrongfully detained and hold the big names to account. Although we’ve been leading the charge for almost a century now, as far as we’re concerned, the fight for fair has only just begun.

Our Values


We’re for the little guy. We believe everyone deserves access to justice regardless of their financial means, whether they’re an individual or a group of shareholders.


We recognise that our clients put their trust in us to make the most of their shot at justice. So we work as a team to fight for a fair result for our clients. It’s the right thing to do.


It’s one thing to understand what someone is going through when the chips are down. It’s another to feel genuine compassion. At Maurice Blackburn we treat our clients and our colleagues like real people. We care about each other, and we’re not afraid to take thing personally.


Every day, Maurice Blackburn people are faced with a job that’s as complex as it is challenging. Good. We’ve never been afraid of the tough stuff. We approach hard work and big cases with a restless tenacity that is truly unique amongst our peers.

We have delivered thousands of compensation settlements for Australians who have suffered workplace accidents, or been victims of negligence and unfair practices. We believe that fairness is a universal right, not just for the chosen few. That’s why we fight for the rights of everyday Australians.
