“In June 2021, Ms George provided Network Ten with a detailed complaint about her treatment. Since that time, the company has failed to investigate her allegations, citing variously that it wasn’t sure if she wanted to proceed, that the allegations were not sufficiently detailed, that they thought that the complaints had resolved to her satisfaction, and that they were conducting a ‘culture review’.
“In contrast to the complete failure to investigate Ms George’s detailed complaints, when Ms George overheard snippets of a conversation between two colleagues which contained sexist remarks about a third colleague and reported it to a manager, she was threatened with disciplinary action if she refused to make a formal written statement about it. Ms George was concerned about why Network 10 were taking such an approach to that matter, while failing to address much more serious issues in the workplace. In any event, management had the information necessary to address the matter if they wished.
“Any suggestion that Ms George refused or failed to report an incident of sexual harassment is false."
