NSW Labor’s Chris Minns responds to Broderick review into bullying, harassment and sexual misconduct

7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “NSW Labor’s Chris Minns responds to Broderick review into bullying, harassment and sexual misconduct” – below is their description.

Several people have alleged they were raped inside NSW parliament workplaces in the past five years, according to a horrifying new report.

The claims were made by five people who said they were victims of either rape or attempted rape.

A review of workplace bullying and sexual harassment by former sex discrimination commissioner Elizabeth Broderick was released today and will send shockwaves through state parliament.

It paints a picture of the parliament as a dysfunctional, sexist, elitist and alcohol-fuelled workplace where some MPs enjoy humiliating staff and making them cry, and where sexual harassment and homophobic comments are not uncommon.

The review describes some MP offices as “well-known” bullying and harassment ”hot spots” and says the tormenting of staffers goes on at a ”systemic” rate across the parliament.

“No one who has been victimised as a result of the actions of a member of my team has come to me to make a complaint” – Chris Minns – NSW Labor.
