The complainant worked for the respondent club in a hospitality role. She alleged her supervisor sexually harassed her including by making comments of a sexual nature about her sexual activities and asking if she wanted ‘a threesome’. The complainant claimed that on returning to work after maternity leave, she was allocated night and weekend shifts, despite being a single parent with two children. She also claimed her manager was abusive towards her if her children were sick or if she could not organise a baby sitter. The complainant alleged that because she attempted to assert her rights regarding her family responsibilities, the club pressured her to resign and she left her employment.
On being advised of the complaint the club agreed to participate in conciliation.
The complaint was resolved with an agreement that the club pay the complainant $6,000.
