Worker Sacked For Sharing Photo Of Premier With Hitler Moustache

Worker sacked for sharing photo of Premier with Hitler moustache

A worker sacked for posting a picture of former NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian with a Hitler moustache has received compensation.

The NSW Industrial Relations Commission found the child protection worker was justifiably sacked.

However, it also found the dismissal harsh because the woman’s family was in a dire financial situation as a result of the pandemic.

Vanessa Lichi previously worked for the NSW Department of Communities and Justice.

In July 2021, she attended a “Freedom” Rally in the city, in breach of public health orders at the time.

Lichi also posted several pictures which her managers described as “highly derogatory towards the decisions of the NSW government around the actions taken regarding the COVID-19”.

One of the images posted on her Facebook page showed then-Premier Berejiklian with a Hitler moustache.

The picture contained the words “IF IT FITS WEAR IT”.

Lichi posted another image with the words, “by the end of August the military will be knocking on your door if you haven’t had a jab or they will take your kids off you! Wake the fk up Australia!”

The Department subsequently terminated Lichi’s employment.
