    You don't end up with a billion dollar bottom line by actually letting employees have rights!

    Incredible! I really am lost for words. And for me, that's saying something.

    while I accept that there is two sides to every story - and journalism these days is often sensationalised .... this is gobsmacking !!!

    Not sure that I can even imagine any circumstances where requiring a pelvic exam by their own doctor would be required ...

    I can't help but think there is something missing from this story. I work in HR and myself and all of the other HR people I know (within my company and elsewhere) are very aware and risk-averse when it comes to anything that could lead to a discrimination claim. ANZ would have a huge, experienced HR team and I just can't imagine that we're getting the whole story.

    If I'm wrong though and the story has been accurately recounted, that is absolutely horrific treatment and is highly illegal.

    agreed JR03 - but I also remember that case with Chevron where they were asking on job applications forms if you had had a termination etc ... it does happen.

    I wouldnt mind knowing some more details though

    I don't want to derail the thread but just wanted this. My workplace is currently going through a restructure via an external party. All the key people were interview by this guy. During my interview he openly asked 'so when are you planning your next baby?'.

    And then they wonder why I'm so anxious about keeping my job.

    Anyway, OP, this is terrible, that poor woman. I'd like to know what ANZ have to say.

    I was just reading about this a couple of hours ago.

    It just highlights to me how much of a mans world we do still live in. The current trend of women who are using the hashtag 'women against feminism' and then giving the most ridiculous reason as to why they don't need it (which can all be countered with "YOU CAN DO THAT BECAUSE OF FEMINISM!! ) need only look at this case to realise how far we actually have to go.

    And it's like as was said earlier, were male employees required to have a prostate check? Because an employee is an employee, right? They wouldn't discriminate according to gender, that is so 1870's... oh...

    oooh yes, this annoys the bejesus out of me. All these women saying they themselves haven't experienced sexism/discrimination so it must mean it doesn't exist. Urrrm the fact you can even work, or complete the degree you did, have the ability to use contraception to have as many or little children as you want, marry who you want... *coughs* yep that's feminism there
