When you apply to the Commission, you are starting a legal process. Always check the deadlines and only give us documents or evidence if we ask for them.
Before you apply
See common issues we deal with, and follow the processes on this website to understand what to do.
You can only apply for help with disputes if you are eligible. We recommend you check eligibility before you apply.
Most applications have a deadline. Check the deadline as we may not accept late applications.
If you are worried you will miss the deadline because you are waiting for information, you can contact us on 1300 799 675 to find out what options may be available to you, or you can submit your form with as much information as you have.
The deadlines are in Rule 14 of the Fair Work Commission Rules 2013.
