Early exit. We’ve all seen the warnings about behaving yourself at the work Christmas party. But Ms Tips hears that a journalist from News Corp in Adelaide might not have heeded that advice, and has been sacked for inappropriate behaviour. At the party on December 8, held for staff from The Advertiser, Sunday Mail and the community Messenger papers, the journalist groped or tried to grope more than a couple of colleagues, as well as some other inappropriate behaviour. After a short HR investigation, they was shown the door. News Corp didn’t respond to Crikey’s requests for confirmation or comment.
