More than 2700 photos of breasts, cleavage taken at library

WHISTLEBLOWERS say the State Government is stalling million-dollar sexual harassment claims from female State Library of Queensland staff after many women have been identified in 2784 secret close-up photographs of breasts and cleavage discovered on a government-issued iPhone and iPad in 2012.

The photographs, showing close-ups of the cleavage of women SLQ staff, women from the public and young female high-school students, were taken by a senior State Library of Queensland staff member on that staff member's government-issued iPhone and iPad.

The State Library of Queensland insists the issue has been investigated and denies preventing staff from lodging sexual harassment claims.

The existence of the secret photographs - taken while the staff member pretended to make or receive emails on their phone - was confirmed publicly by Queensland's State Librarian Janette Wright in a Workers Compensation hearing on July 29, 2014.

"It was clear to me that the behaviour that had been established was clearly gross misconduct," Ms Wright said.
