CASE TYPE: Jobs and qualifications under threat for personal statements of belief


Peter* was a doctor in QLD who had complaints made about him to the Medical Board over personal posts on a social media platform about traditional Christian beliefs on sexuality and gender. Without notification to Peter of any problematic posts, the Medical Board started an investigation into Peter’s social media use. The investigation questioned whether Peter’s personal posts promoted the health of the community and wellbeing of individual patients. Peter rejects the (anonymous and unclear) accusations of breaching any policy. The proceedings were discontinued after legal assistance was provided.
