Seven West Media has this afternoon obtained an interim injunction in the Supreme Court of NSW against Amber Harrison. The Court will consider the matter further tomorrow.
In a statement to media, the network is trying to stop Harrison from releasing emails and company correspondence that she took while employed at the network. Seven believe these were “taken before she left her employment and which she has retained without authority and in breach of her employment obligations.”
As reported on B&T this morning, Harrison – who had an extra-marital affair with Seven CEO, Tim Worner, in 2014 and 2015 – is attempting to embarrass the Seven board ahead of its annual results due out this Wednesday.
Seven’s statement read in full: “Seven West Media today obtained an interim, ex parte injunction in the Supreme Court of NSW against its former employee Ms Harrison releasing documents or information that is the property of the company, which she appears to have taken before she left her employment and which she has retained without authority and in breach of her employment obligations.
It became clear late last week that Ms Harrison is now releasing or divulging commercial in confidence emails and other documents that she has no right to hold, access or release.
These documents extend beyond the scope of the other dispute Ms Harrison has with SWM.
The relief sought is based not only on breaches of the Settlement Deeds but also and importantly on violations of obligations of confidentiality arising under the general law, the Corporations Act and her former contract of employment.”
