AMP to publish harassment report

The wealth giant has signalled it could be set to release the findings report from the investigation into the sexual harassment allegations against AMP Capital chief Boe Pahari.

On Monday, Julia Szlakowski, the former female executive behind the complaint against Mr Pahari came forward and slammed the group for its recent public statements, saying it had downplayed the sexual harassment she experienced.

Ms Szlakowski and her legal representation at Maurice Blackburn had called for her seven page complaint along with the findings report of the investigation to be released.

AMP on Wednesday stated it was “willing” to release the investigation report, with Mr Pahari already having provided consent.

The group has contacted Ms Szlakowski’s lawyers to seek her consent.

However, the report will be redacted to remove names, initials and job titles of any party other than Ms Szlakowski and Mr Pahari, to protect their confidentiality, AMP stated.

The matter had been investigated by UK labour and employment law specialist Andrew Burns in 2017.
The allegations and the consequences imposed on Mr Pahari were overseen at the time by the AMP Capital chief executive, the AMP Capital chairman and the AMP CEO.

The former group board were also informed.

In July, the company had said the charges regarded comments made by Mr Pahari, which were “lower level breaches” of the AMP code of conduct.

“AMP has always acknowledged the seriousness of the 2017 employment complaint made against AMP Capital CEO, Boe Pahari,” AMP said on Wednesday morning.

Mr Pahari was recently promoted to CEO of the investment business – the current group board had been advised of the allegations and undertaken another review. The board members had decided they were satisfied with how thorough the investigation and that the consequences were significant and appropriate.
