New Fair Work Commission Rules commence today

27 Mar 2024

The new Fair Work Commission Rules 2024 commence today.

These replace the previous Rules made in 2013. The Rules regulate the practice and procedure of the Commission.

The Rules largely remake the old Rules, but with changes to update the old Rules and improve their usability and clarity, including rearranging and renumbering. Changes have also been introduced to accommodate changes to other legislation.

The Rules were remade following a review and a public feedback process to ensure they were still meeting the needs of the Commission and the people who use our services.

Further information about the changes is available in the Explanatory Statement.

A copy of the Rules is available on the Federal Register of Legislation.
