Case Australian Women Without Borders vs. Mercer PR
On 27 October 2016, the National Justice Project submitted a complaint on behalf of Australian Women Without Borders against Mercer PR to the Australian National Contact Point. The complaint alleged that Mercer PR had breached Chapter IV (on Human Rights) of the OECD Guidelines when it distributed the personal information of an alleged sexual assault victim who was given the pseydonym "Najma" for the purposes of the complaint. The breach occurred by way of the email dissemination to media outlets of a statement that included a copy of a Nauruan police document revealing Najma's identity and medical details. The distribution of Najma’s personal information had a significant impact on her. The complaint sought a formal apology from Mercer PR which acknowledged the harm it had caused. It also requested that Mercer PR introduce internal polices consistent with the OECD Guidelines and international human rights law, conduct human rights training for its staff, and pay Najma compensation for the harm it had caused her.
