Employees can bring actions against their Employers before the Fair Work Commission in range of circumstances arising from their activity in the workplace. Common examples of the types of actions brought in this respect include:
- Unfair Dismissal Claims;
- General Protections Claims; and
- Anti-Bullying applications.
Strict legal rules apply to the conduct of actions before the Fair Work Commission. These legal rules apply to the conduct of such matters, who commences proceedings, their timing, the filing of relevant documentation, presentation of evidence and remedies available.
It is not always easy for parties involved in Fair Work Commission proceedings to understand how best to proceed or address an action that is raised.
