This week saw the start of a long-awaited employment court case between Associate Professor Siouxsie Wiles and the University of Auckland.
The case has already received extensive media attention from all major outlets.
Dr Wiles alleges the university failed to protect her from a “tsunami of threats” she received for her public commentary on the Covid-19 pandemic. She said she had raised concerns to the university about her safety since April 2020, shortly after the pandemic began.
The university denies unjustifiably disadvantaging Wiles, breaching their agreement or its statutory obligations. It says it has also acted in good faith towards her.
The hearing is set down for three weeks.
