Sexual harassment

We defended a state government department against a school teacher who alleged that the head teacher had sexually harassed her. She filed a substantial case with over 200 pages of submissions and evidence. Upon investigation, it appeared that the claim could not be substantiated. We applied to the Administrative Decisions Tribunal to have the claim dismissed as lacking in substance. During the hearing the school teacher withdrew her claim.
