    Prostitute wins right to work from motel

    A fly-in fly-out prostitute has won the right to work from a central Queensland motel, even though the owners want her kicked out.

    The Civil and Administrative Tribunal has found the owners of Moranbah's Drovers Rest Motel contravened the Anti-Discrimination Act by banning the prostitute from using the premises when they realised she was bringing clients back to her room.

    The Gold Coast-based woman - known as GK in the judgement - is now seeking thousands of dollars in compensation after successfully appealing the decision that stopped her from using the coalfields motel as a base for her sex work.
    Accommodation Association of Australia CEO Richard Munro says the decision has major ramifications.

    "We see the main point here [as] being that the responsibility of who stays or in fact doesn't stay at a property should rest with the manager, the owner of a property," he said.

    "Our main concern is if someone's running a business and other guests make complaints they should have the ability to act upon that.

    "And we believe that that decision should ultimately rest with the proprietor or licensee or manager of those premises.

    I thought they would have grounds for banning based on her using the room as a place of business rather than private accommodation. Nevermind about offending other guests.

    Put a few HD vid cameras in her place of business and offer to guests on pay per view. Only those who are non offended need subscribe. A win, win all around.

    Ridiculous, especially in light of Australia prostitution law. The hotel, certainly does not fall into the "legally authorized" brothel category under which the only legal means there is to practice prostitution.

    Just another case of courts infringing on the rights of the folk who own businesses.

    suspect it's a case of semantics and will be overturned on appeal .

    sounds as if she won the right to be a guest there which she has and can not be discriminated against simply because she's a known pro .

    doubt she has actually been granted legal protection to ply her trade .

    Poor girl. Poor hotel owner. The place will be overrun with blubbery sheilas in lycra now, flashing their gargantuan milkbags at passers-by.

    Hope they don't have a pool.

    It's all about the equality, so now I want to see a few gay prostitutes take up residence at the motel.

    A couple hotel reviews of the establishment in question. Oddly similar. Coincidence.

    From

    i found the old lady owner to be very rude and unhelpful. she overcharged me for my room which i didn t realise at the time n had to get reimbursed through my credit card provider. i was woken early in the morning by loud cleaning staff gossiping outside my window. This was the worst experience i have ever had staying in a motel n i travel on a regular basis for business. Dnt waste your time with this place unless you want to be treated like something you stepped in and want to be ripped off with a less than average room.

    From John.
    We tour around with work staying at different locations every night. It is difficult to find accommodation in Moranbah due to mining boom.
    Drovers Rest is clean and tidy BUT the lady owner is dreadful. She actually abused us on check in due to her paperwork system, said didn't care if we stayed. Tried to charge more than the quoted / listed price, had another argument, in front of other guests. We will never ever stay at this location again. TERRIBLE
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    I might be needing to edit the wording of my previous post...

    (Social is probably getting a stiffy reading this... .)
