A former Big Brother star whose boss gave a boat party to celebrate her resignation has revealed that she is taking legal action.
Laura Clare said she endured two years of workplace bullying at a Sydney company in a tearful video shared with TikTok.
Ms. Clare, who appeared on Big Brother in 2007, said her CEO hosted a celebratory party after she finally quit.
The video has been viewed over 1.6 million times and Ms. Clare has received thousands of responses.
Ms. Clare released a follow-up TikTok video to update her situation and revealed that she was taking legal action.
“So I just wanted to give an update because a lot of people contacted me to ask if I’m okay because I was crying ugly on the internet,” she said.
The video was covered in text that read, “I followed all your advice and decided to take it further.”
Ms. Clare then admitted she was “not great.”
“But the love and support I received was overwhelming. I don’t know how lucky I was, “she said.
“All these beautiful people came and supported me and gave me support and told me I was worth it.
“It means more to me than you’ll ever know, I just want to stay, thank you.”

While it was difficult to lift the lid on her experience, Ms. Clare said it was important to do.
“I have to do this for me and the next girl.”
The Sydney worker also revealed that she would be moving north to be closer to her friends and family for support.
In the original video, Ms. Clare started by explaining that her boss had become “mean” in the past year.

“In the past year, he really turned me around and just been mean,” she said in the video.
“He told me I’m not worth what I get, that he can replace me in an instant.
“He yells at me and swears at me, it’s actually a violent relationship.”
When she finally turned in her resignation, she was surprised that her boss gave her a leave party.
But her joy soon turned to grief when she realized the truth.
So this afternoon I open my email to see that there is an invitation for a boat day and it is called ‘Celebrate Laura leaving’.
“And I thought it was for me, why would I think anything else? And I accepted.
And then he wrote back and said “please read the details”. One day he invited the entire company to celebrate my absence. ‘

Ms. Clare, who is also a singer, said she knew that other people had shitty bosses, but she thinks her boss ‘almost got over it’.
Ms Clare’s Harper James Law Group attorney Mona Youssef told Daily Mail Australia that this was one of the worst workplace bullying cases she has seen.
She said that Ms. Clare “experienced a lot of trauma.”
“I don’t know how she got through this. I don’t know if she can get back to work after this. ‘
