A former Liberal staffer has criticised South Coast MP Shelley Hancock for her lack of acknowledgement following an alleged indecent assault while under her employment.
Dhanya Mani said in 2015 a NSW Liberal parliamentary staffer forced himself onto her in her home.
Ms Mani claims she reported the alleged assault to her supervisor. She also said she was advised by a senior Liberal woman that her complaints were unlikely to lead anywhere.
"If Shelley says that she was never informed, that's because my supervisor didn't tell her," she said.
"The expectation I had is that my supervisor would obviously appropriately escalate the matter. And if he didn't do that, then that's because she failed to have an office process."
Last year, Mrs Hancock told the South Coast Register that the indecent assault was not reported to her, and that she did not know why the information had not been fed back to her by colleagues.
"[Mrs Hancock] has my number. She could have called me, rather than just talking to the press," said Ms Mani.
"She could have simply given me a ring and said, 'Hey, how are you? What can I do?'"
Mrs Hancock was contacted for comment regarding the matter, however did not respond.
Ms Mani said she initially reported the alleged assault verbally to her supervisor.
After she said she received no support, Ms Mani claims she submitted a complaint to the Premier's office "months before this story went public in the media in November 2018".
"And they didn't do anything about it. Then I re-approached the office in the days after my story went up and they again refused to help," she said.
"It was because of all those attempts failed at a state level that I tried to contact the Prime Minister's office.
"It was feeling like I exhausted every mechanism at a state level and feeling like there was just no one left to help."
A fourth woman has aired allegations of assault by the former Liberal staffer accused of raping his colleague, Brittany Higgins. After Prime Minister Scott Morrison acknowledged these allegations, Ms Mani said she wanted to see the state parliament acknowledge her story.
"At least federal parliament are acknowledging what happened and debating about it and figuring out what to do next," she said.
"Whereas Gladys [Berejiklian] still has not publicly acknowledged anything I've said."
There are now calls for a Cabinet minister to be stood down after an anonymous letter about an historical sexual assault allegation in 1988 was sent to the Prime Minister's office last Friday.
The woman who made the allegation alerted NSW police last year, and took her own life last June before making a formal statement. Ms Mani, who was friends with the woman, hopes a coronial inquiry into her death will uncover more.
