The alleged behaviour of former NSW Labor leader Luke Foley "cannot be tolerated", federal Labor leader Bill Shorten says.

Mr Foley resigned on Thursday evening after ABC journalist Ashleigh Raper revealed details of a November 2016 incident in which the state opposition leader allegedly put his hand down her underpants.

Labor gives strong indication they'll increase the dole Bill Shorten has given a strong indication a Labor Government could increase the dole, ahead of policy debate at the party's national conference in December.

"Considering the behaviour described, and what has happened hasn't respected her wishes - I think something the rest of us can do is treat her with some respect".
