The Nine Network is to investigate sexual harassment, bullying and assault allegations made against Don Burke by female staff and associates. The accusations against Burke, host of the long-running "Burke’s Backyard" show that was broadcast on Nine, were made as part of an investigation by the ABC and Fairfax Media. Roger Singh from Shine Lawyers notes media firms could be hit with significant damages claims if it was found they were negligent in their duty of care in terms of staff that had been the subject of abuse.
