The Industrial Relations Act 1967 was amended with effect from 1 Jan 2021. One of the key amendments was to remove the previous restriction under Section 33B to appeal the decision of the Industrial Court to the High Court and the introduction of Section 33C which allows an aggrieved party to now appeal to the High Court. This webinar will delve into this new appeal process.
This webinar, organised by the Bar Council Industrial and Employment Law Committee, will cover the following issues:
The process and/or procedure on filing appeals to the High Court;
- The differences between judicial review and appeals including principles of intervention by the High Court as well as leave requirements;
- The right to appeal the decision of the High Court to the Court of Appeal for Industrial Court matters; and
- The benefits of the new appeal process.
