Consistent with Practice Notes 1, 17A, 23, 29 and 30 parties are reminded of the onus on them to comply with directions made for the filing of documents where matters are listed for hearing, including where applicable the provision of material in computer readable format.
Should you be unable to comply with the directions made you should contact the registry as soon as you become aware of your inability to comply in order to seek a variation to the timetable. It will be necessary to explain why compliance is not possible. The consent of other parties is not conclusive. The Commission must consider the impact on parties to other matters as well.
Timetable variations may be dealt with by the Industrial Registrar or the Commissioner hearing the matter.
Failure to comply with case management directions may see the matter referred to a Commissioner after 7 days of non-compliance or earlier if the Registrar is concerned the hearing dates may be in jeopardy.
Possible outcomes for non-compliance include remedies under Part 6 of the Civil Procedure Act.
