‘I’m sorry’: ‘I can’t talk about it’: An interpreter explains her ‘painful’ decision to quit
- by admin
An interpreter has described her decision to leave her job as “painful” and “a little difficult”.
Dr Lisa Loughlin, who has been working in Melbourne’s CBD for almost three decades, left her job at the Royal Children’s Hospital on Monday after nearly a year of work.
“It’s been a wonderful job, it’s very hard to describe, but it’s been really nice, really supportive and I feel really lucky,” Dr Loughlen said.
“But I think a lot of people are going to be a little disappointed with me because it’s not what I expected.”
The reason why I left was because I was being discriminated against, and it’s just really frustrating.
“I feel like I’ve been discriminated against.”
Dr Loughlan is not the first Australian to leave a job after becoming ill.
Last year, a South Australian woman, who had worked for more than five years as a translator for the Australian Health Services, quit after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
The case prompted calls for the Government to create a “safe harbour” for Australians with health conditions, including interpreters.
Dr Laughlin has been speaking to about 200 people a week and has also spoken to the Prime Minister about the case.
