The Fair Work Commission has established user groups to facilitate an exchange of views and provide a two-way communication forum between the Commission and key stakeholders.
These groups are listed below.
Legal Profession Reference Group
The membership of the Legal Profession Reference Group consists of Justice Ross, President of the Commission, and national law firms who frequently appear in matters before the Commission.
Employment Termination User Group
The Employment Termination User Group was established to provide a forum for the exchange of views from key users regarding the case management practices established for dealing with unfair dismissal applications under Part 3-2 of the Fair Work Act 2009.
The group is led by the Head of the Termination of Employment Panel, and comprises representatives from national bodies whose affiliates or members represent applicants and/or respondents in unfair dismissal matters before the Commission. It is anticipated that the group will meet quarterly in Melbourne.
