Basilio, I think you've misunderstood my post. In saying that:
I was referring to the actions of either McInnes or Fraser-Kirk during prior employment, or since leaving DJ's. Perhaps I should have made myself clearer. I had just read the following from the link you quoted above http://www.theage.com.au/business/ha...802-113eb.htmlQuote:
any prior actions by either party have no bearing on whether DJ's board knew what was going on in their own company or not, and that seems to be the crux of the punitive damages she's seeking isn't it?
Thanks DocK for the clarification. I thought as much but it seemed unclear.
Nice job on highlighting the alleged extent of Mr Mcinnes interest in staff and (almost ) any other woman with a pulse.
(Given the above poor Allannah Hill would have felt truly mortified in not being invited back..)
It's interesting to reflect on the larger picture. Obviously Mr McInnes had a huge passion for life, love and woman. Certainly in some of the newspaper reports there was a lot of warmth displayed towards him from a number of people because of this passion. I'm guessing that his highly charged passion was generally a positive driving force in a woman dominated industry.
On memory I believe at least a couple of the newspaper reports acknowledged that plenty of women responded to his attention. Probably the men (including the board) just thought "What a lucky bastard" and prayed nothing went pear shaped. And in the end it looks as if McInnes just couldn't understand how anyone could possibly say no to his offers.
I wonder if there are any present or ex DJ staffers who are writing up a good juicy story on life around Mark ? Certainly make a good read and no doubt No Idea et al would love to serialise it. (and never, ever see a cent of DJ's advertising until hell freezes over.)
But perhaps it would go better as a viral post on the net ?
