A Queensland sex worker has negotiated $20,000 compensation after being ‘outed’ at his day job.
The young man’s employer agreed to the payment after admitting his co-worker subjected him to sexual harassment and discrimination.
Industrial advocate Miles Heffernan negotiated the settlement during conciliation in the Industrial Relations Commission recently.
“This young man’s co-worker and manager treated him appallingly,” he said.
“He was inappropriately touched, subjected to homophobic slurs, and taunted about his sex work.
“Additionally, when he complained, the company punished him by refusing to promote him.”
