Husar speaks after the work clears it of lascivious behavior

The outgoing Labor MP, Emma Husar, visited social networks to defend herself after an internal investigation acquitted her of most of the accusations that she acted inappropriately.

"I do not think any of these [allegations] It should have cost me my reputation, my job, or have humiliated me and my children, "he said in a statement.

"I recognized the difficulties I had to face in establishing a new office, despite requesting assistance."

Ms. Husar has been cleared of allegations of sexual harassment, but one report found that she made irrational demands on her staff.

The federal parliamentarian in western Sydney had already announced that she would not review her Lindsay post in the next election, but a NSW labor report published 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," found the report of attorney John Whelan.

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

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

It also required an investigation into his use of parliamentary expenses, and another investigation into the way his staff was used to perform non-electoral work tasks, such as walking his dog and looking after his children.

The allegations that Ms. Husar sexually harassed a staff member did not receive support for the rest of the probabilities, while the claim that she was exposed to another federal MP was also not admitted.

The investigation in Ms. Husar's office lasted for months, but was only made public in recent weeks, with the leaking of some details of the accusations against her.

"The publication of a selection of subjects subject to this evaluation in the public domain was reprehensible," the report found.

"It has served to heighten tensions in an environment in which many have reported on the stress this issue has caused to their mental health."

Ms. Husar announced on Wednesday that she would resign from politics, beating "faceless" people within the Labor Party that leaked against her.

Labor leader Bill Shorten said that Mrs. Husar had done the right thing for the party when she resigned.

"In terms of what he has done and what he has not done, he will have the opportunity to read the report and people will learn the lessons," he told reporters on Friday.

"Everyone should be treated with respect for this process and there is little else I can add."

The government should investigate all the accusations against the Labor parliamentarian, said Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

"Any problem of harassment or bullying in the workplace should be addressed by the Finance Department," he said.

"The real question is when did Bill Shorten know about this? If he accepts what he says, he was the last person in the Labor Party to know what was going on."
