Roxy Jacenko says she has “had enough” after receiving a second visit from police over claims her Sydney PR company is not following Covid lockdown restrictions.
The Sweaty Betty founder posted a letter she received from SafeWork NSW to her Instagram on Tuesday afternoon, along with a video of the inside of her Paddington office.
In the letter, SafeWork NSW said it had been informed she was conducting business at the location.
“Workers and others may be at risk in the workplace due to alleged inadequate controls from biological hazards and to manage the risk of infections to Covid-19,” it read.
“Specifically it is alleged that workers are not being allowed to work from home in line with public health orders without consultation or a reasonably practicable review being conducted.”
Ms Jacenko vented her frustrations on social media after she said another set of police had come to visit.
“I’ve had enough,” she said.
“Running a small business is hard enough. Due to lockdown I have an empty office with over 20 [employees] working remotely [and] I am doing the work of at-least 4 myself.
“My online team (for 3 online stores) are working in the office on shorter hours as products don’t send themselves with Auspost.
“I have had 2 visits from the Police and now this letter - enough now.
“I wonder if I stopped paying the wages of these imbeciles who are making these reports of me apparently flouting the rules they might change their tune…” she said.
Yahoo News Australia has contacted Ms Jacenko for comment.
SafeWork said in the letter that they would not be sending an inspector to the mum of two’s office and provided her with guidelines.
In her video footage, Ms Jacenko pauses to show several signs displaying advice about social distancing and masks.
A handful of employees can be seen wearing masks while working in one room of the otherwise empty office.
