The woman sacked by Cricket Australia for tweeting criticism on the Tasmanian Government’s lack of action on appropriate abortion services has reached an out-of-court settlement with her former employer.
Angela Williamson was set to pursue action against the cricketing body in the Federal Court for unfair dismissal and seek compensation for damage to her reputation.
Ms Williamson was fired from her role as a government relations officer after a series of tweets in which she criticised Premier Will Hodgman and Health Minister Michael Ferguson on the state’s lacking and unaffordable abortion services.
The tweets lead to Cricket Tasmania and Cricket Australia to view her position with them untenable.
A Cricket Australia spokesperson said in a brief statement on Friday:
"Following ongoing discussions, Cricket Australia, Cricket Tasmania and Angela Williamson have been able to reach a mutually satisfactory resolution of the matter."
