TGC lawyer Steven Barker has successfully represented an employee at the Workers’ Compensation Appeal Tribunal. The Tribunal rejected an appeal brought by the employer and upheld an underlying discriminatory action decision in favour of the employee.

The discriminatory action complaint arose from an allegation that the employee was terminated for attempting to address bullying and harassment in the workplace.

The Workers’ Compensation Appeal Tribunal confirmed that the employer had engaged in prohibited discriminatory conduct and that the employee was entitled to compensation in the result.
