A woman involved in council sex allegations tried to get a manager sacked because she feared she would lose her own job, it has been claimed.
Tom McNeil was a senior employee at Aberdeen City Council
Tom McNeil, 52, claims he was forced to quit his Aberdeen City Council post after reporting staff having sex in an office.
The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is alleged to have had sex with colleague Brian Woodcock.
She denied mounting a campaign against Mr McNeil.
Frank Lefevre, representing Mr McNeil, told the tribunal: "My argument is that she saw the allegations against Brian Woodcock and subsequently realised they implicated her and that's why she mounted her campaign against Mr McNeil.
"Until she started making her complaints about Mr McNeil there had been none."
Mr Lefevre told her: "You were well aware that Mr McNeil had made statements about you and Mr Woodcock. You knew perfectly well what he saw going on between you and Mr Woodcock.
"You started a course of conduct to make complaints about Mr McNeil, you brought him into disrepute and you were very successful in doing that."
The woman denied the allegations.
She said: "That is total and utter nonsense, I have told the truth."
Earlier in the tribunal the woman claimed that Mr McNeil was a bully and a sexual harasser.
She said he frequently made comments of a sexual nature about female bodies and had touched her breasts.
She said: "He would constantly talk about sex, he was obsessed by it. We would all have to pretend to find it funny because if we didn't we would be ostracized."
Mr Lefevre asked her whether her alleged partner had switched off CCTV cameras in the council offices while they allegedly performed a sex act.
She said: "I don't know. I can't answer that."
The hearing continues.
