  • 1:00 PM - 1:45 PM

Why do only a fraction of the unfair dismissals applications that are lodged in the Fair Work Commission (2- 3%) proceed to arbitration?

Please join members of the Industrial Relations Society of Queensland to hear Dr Andrew See, Barrister at Law, (see Andrew’s bio below) explore and share his research around:

  • Why do workers pursue arbitration for the resolution of an unfair dismissal remedy application;  
  • What are the main factors and influences on why matters resolve at the various stages of the FWC conciliation and arbitration process; and
  • Whether some types of unfair dismissal case are less likely to be resolved by conciliation?
