Emma Husar Does Not Have To Resign, NSW Labor Report Finds

Outgoing Labor MP Emma Husar has been cleared of sexual harassment allegations but a report did find she made unreasonable demands of her staff.

The federal western Sydney MP had already announced she would not recontest her seat of Lindsay at the next election, but a NSW Labor report released on Friday said she did not have to resign.

"Based on this assessment, there is no basis for Ms Husar to resign from the Australian Parliament," lawyer John Whelan's report found.

But many of the allegations from 22 former electorate staff were backed up.

"Complaints that staff were subjected to unreasonable management including unreasonable communication, demands, practices and disciplinary methods have merit," the report said.

It also called for an investigation into use of her parliamentary expenses, and another investigation into the way her staff were used to perform non-electorate work duties, such as walking her dog and minding her children.
