The Fair Work Commission is considering an amendment to the Fair Work Commission Rules 2013 to facilitate the streamlining of the Commission’s process for dealing with protected action ballot order applications.
The rule change is to enable applications to be determined as efficiently as possible within the legislative timeframe. The amendments are:
- amendment to Rule 31(1) of the Fair Work Commission Rules 2013 to require a statutory declaration (new Form F34B) to accompany the application (Form F34),
- removal of Rule 31(2) as Rules 13 to 16 make provision for the lodgment of documents.
The proposed changes are set out on the Consultation page.
Any comments on the proposed changes should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business on Friday, 16 December 2016.
