Worker Sacked Over Christmas Party Assault Loses Unfair Dismissal

Worker sacked over Christmas party assault loses unfair dismissal

A worker has lost his unfair dismissal claim after being sacked for sexually assaulting a colleague during a work Christmas event.

The man argued that the alleged incident was not work-related because it happened in a private room at a hotel.

However, the Workplace Relations Commission rejected that argument.

Industrial advocates say the case is a timely reminder that workplace rules apply during work functions, even those held off-site.
