A mining company that fired a female truck driver for putting a sex toy in her male colleague's hand luggage has been ordered to pay her $ 6,550 compensation.
Tara Odgers filmed her colleague in security at Moranbah Airport in Queensland in October after he had stored the toys and butter knives in his luggage.
She claimed that her actions were meant as a joke to get her colleague back because she had laid pizza on the roof of her camp room months ago.

The blades were removed from work without permission, The Mackay Daily Mercury reported.
When asked if a sex toy was offensive, the former Caval Ridge employee in central Queensland replied "well, most people have one & # 39;"
In a separate incident in March of this year, she and two of her female assistants bared the top of their breasts while leaning forward & # 39; while they were standing on a dining table for a selfie.
The photo was posted on Facebook without her knowledge, The Australian reported.
But she claimed that the image was not offensive because she only showed her cleavage.
She was withdrawn by Queensland Central Services on March 13 and saw her contract terminated on March 26.

On Tuesday, Fair Work commissioner Jennifer Hunt ordered the company, a subsidiary of BHP, to pay $ 6,550 to Mrs. Odgers within 14 days.
She said that the behavior of the former employee was immature, since she was 49 years old when the hearing was held.
But Commissioner Hunt found that the dismissal did not go according to a company agreement that required a disciplinary process in four stages.
