The Dockers reportedly tried to cover up the alleged incident by throwing a large amount of money at the issue.

It was known in December last year that an unnamed club was being investigated over a sexual harassment claim.

On Saturday, the Herald Sun revealed it was the Dockers.

The official has not been named by the Dockers, and neither the club or the AFL have responded to the claims.

The alleged incident happened several years ago, but the Dockers employee only brought the issue to the club's attention after the #metoo movement that took over social media following sexual harassment claims in Hollywood.
