Workers’ compensation appeal procedures changed in the Q.I.R.C

The process for appeals in the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (Q.I.R.C) for workers’ compensation appeals has changed (effective from 1 October 2015).

You are referred to the Appeals Guide which details the mandatory directions for the conduct of the appeal; tighter time frames; the requirement for the Appellant to file a Statement of Facts and Contentions and for the Respondent to do likewise; each party being bound by their respective statements; and the necessity for a Trial Plan (form) to be filed, including details of the witnesses and time for evidence, again each being bound by the witnesses and time frames nominated, just to name a few.
