    How utterly odd!

    "Hey let me have someone look inside your vagina just to be sure. Your Dr could be lying you know. If you don't then you will face disciplinary action because I don't believe that belly holds a baby at all"

    Are they really serious!?! In what world is that OK!

    Holy sh*t how could that actually happen... I never had an internal exam the whole pregnancy under regaular care and I would damn well refuse one. Also, if the issue was related to red blood count or blood related, couldn't they just request she have a second blood test if they really didn't believe her? This is unreal!

    I feel it's going to blow up in the ANZ's face. How terrible for the lady involved.

    Yet another large unethical company. It's really not surprising that they've pulled a stunt like this. They have the financial power to afford better legal representation than most individuals so probably get away with such things more often than they are reported.
    I think this incident just adds to the long list of reason to divest from banks like ANZ and take your money elsewhere. Building societies and credit unions are both better options!

    I was reading about this today and whilst I know there's likely to be 2 sides to every story, I have no clue what ANZ's defence to this could be.
    None that I can see that would make it ok for an employer to demand you let a stranger poke around in your vag.

    I wish I could say I'm amazed that somone actually thought that this would be ok. But I'm not. And people say we don't need feminism? Don't see the male employees with prostate issues having to line up to have thier prostates check by the company doctor do ya?
