The ABC has the sad news that the Comcare is now liable for the emotional fallout of office romances after firebomber Colin Dunstan had a win in the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
Dunstan has fought a long battle for compensation, claiming he was harassed by a colleague with whom he had had an affair .

It found he was entitled to compensation and ordered Comcare to calculate the amount.
