What’s Been Happening in Australia in Relation to Sexual Harassment, Discrimination and Bullying from 25 – 31 December 2017

Councillors Interviewed About Lord Mayor’s Alleged Sexual Harassment
City of Melbourne councillors have been interviewed in the wake of claims that Lord Mayor Robert Doyle sexually harassed colleagues. The lawyer heading the independent investigation, Dr Freckelton, said whether councillors who formerly served alongside the Lord Mayor would be interviewed “remain[s] to be seen”. Nevertheless, former councillor and business, Ken Ong said that, “From a public confidence perspective, some leadership needs to be brought back in… It’s a shame this happened and put a lot of good work back”. Dr Freckelton’s findings will be reported in late January.
