Legal Representation in the Fair Work Commission Sunday, May 24 2015,

The Bar Association has made a submission to the Productivity Commission Inquiry into the Workplace Relations Framework. The association recommends that the Fair Work Act 2009 be amended to permit any party to proceedings before the commission to be legally represented. It argues that the limitation on legal representation of parties in proceedings in the commission is giving rise to inefficiencies; increased costs for parties, duplication in work in preparing for cases, and uncertainty about the process.
