Antoinette Lattouf, a fill-in presenter at ABC, was terminated after posting on social media about the Israel-Palestine conflict. The Fair Work Commission ruled that ABC’s action constituted a dismissal, thereby allowing Lattouf to seek further legal recourse.

The broadcaster asserted that Lattouf’s dismissal was due to her violation of their social media policy. However, Lattouf contended that her termination was unlawful. The Fair Work Commission’s decision has opened the door for Lattouf to pursue additional legal action against ABC in the Federal Court.

Lattouf’s lawyer welcomed the ruling, expressing their intent to challenge ABC’s decision further. This case highlights the ongoing tensions between employee expression on social media and organizational policies.
