Craig McLachlan and workplace respect (from the archives)

(Premium content) Premium content

McLachlan was accused of indecent assault in 2014 so the state’s previous laws were applied to the case. But what if we judge the case on the basis of professional workplace behaviour?

This article was originally published in December 2020 as 'What the Craig McLachlan verdict says about respectful workplaces'. We are reproducing that article here to highlight the issue of sexual harassment in the arts rather than focus on an individual case.

Of all the things to be angry about 2020, is it worth getting upset over another wealthy, middle-aged, famous-bloke-with-very-good-lawyers getting away with unprofessional behaviour in his workplace?
