A number of staff at the Bimberi Youth Justice Centre have been stood down in the wake of a violent incident between a worker and three teenagers.

The Canberra Times has revealed an 18-year-old allegedly assaulted a member of staff last year in an altercation which led to three employees being hospitalised.

It's understood the first staff member was beaten, kicked and punched and a second dislocated their shoulder trying to break up the fight.

One of the alleged attackers was not transferred to the Alexander Maconochie Centre, as is protocol, and four employees have been stood down as an investigation continues.
