Thank you John, I would like to know a case that has gone to trial successfully and who represented the client in a case of Work place slaking please. I not sure now if I spelt that correctly Irene
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

stalking can occur in both the workplace and in private.

Stalking is not a case that goes through the Fair Work Commission, this is a criminal offence is and is heard in the local court.

Are you being stalked at work at the moment ?
