For visitors to our blog, there are now two published submissions from ex-staff at the uni - KH (see previous post) and MA (Michelle Adams).
Michelle's submission can be read in detail on the Workplace Bullying Inquiry's website (M.A.). She has also had her experiences reported in a number of newspaper articles (see right-hand side of this web-page and a very recent one here).
She states that
"In 2012 the Workers Compensation Commission (WCC) determined that my psychological injury was permanent and caused entirely by the bullying and workplace harassment I had experienced from the University of . I was awarded compensation. Days latter the University of released a statement to the Herald, denying that it was liable for my injury."
Michelle's submission provides clear evidence of the University failing to follow its own policies, providing erroneous information to various legal bodies (the Police, Workers Compensation Commission, Human Rights Commission, medical practitioners, etc) and using university funding to pay for legal services.
These two submissions provide the public with a clear picture of how the University treats anyone who does not collude in the cover-up of staff misconduct.
Additional submissions relating to the University, not yet published, will support and confirm the bullying situation at the University of Newcastle.
