Hawkesbury Race Club ordered to pay $2.8 million in compensation
The Hawkesbury Race Club has been forced to pay its former long-time sponsorship manager Vivienne Leggett more than $2.8 million in compensation and legal costs after Federal Court judge Steven Rares ruled in her favour.
Justice Rares had previously found that former Hawkesbury Race Club chief executive Greg Rudolph had “bullied and harassed Mrs Leggett from the outset of his role” when he was employed in May 2016. Leggett had previously won a case on the same issues before the Workers Compensation Commission, back in November 2017.
