Federal Court Amendment Rules 2009 (No. 2)

 

 

Section 59 of the Federal Court of Australia Act 1976 permits the Judges of the Court or a majority of them, to make rules of Court not inconsistent with the Act.  These rules may provide for the practice and procedure to be followed in the Court and in Registries of the Court.  They may extend to all matters incidental to any such practice or procedure that are necessary or convenient to be prescribed for the conduct of any business of the Court.

 

Under subsection 59 (4) of the Federal Court of Australia Act 1976, the Legislative Instruments Act 2003 (other than sections 5, 6, 7, 10, 11 and 16 of that Act) applies in relation to rules of court made by the Court under the Federal Court of Australia Act 1976 or another Act:

(a)           as if a reference to a legislative instrument were a reference to a rule of court; and

(b)          as if a reference to a rule-maker were a reference to the Chief Justice acting on behalf of the Judges of the Court; and

(c)           subject to such further modifications or adaptations as are provided for in regulations made under section 59A of the Federal Court of Australia Act 1976.

 

The present Federal Court Rules came into operation on 1 August 1979.  They are reviewed regularly.

 

The Judges have agreed to amend the Federal Court Rules by:

·               replacing references to the Workplace Relations Act 1996 with references to the Fair Work Act 2009 and Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Act 2009, as appropriate.

·               replacing Order 48 with a new Order 48 which refers to the relevant provisions of the Fair Work Act 2009, Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Act 2009 and related regulations;

·               replacing Order 50 with a new Order 50 which replaces the references to the Industrial Registrar under the Workplace Relations Act with references to the President of Fair Work Australia;

·               inserting new forms 5B, 5C and 5D (which relate to particular applications under the Fair Work Act) in Schedule 1 to the Rules;

·               inserting a requirement that each document filed in a proceeding must include a reference to the Division in which the proceeding is being heard and determined, with consequential changes to the forms prescribed in Schedule 1 to the Federal Court Rules.

 

The Amendment Rules have been made in light of the enactment of the Fair Work Act 2009, Fair Work (Transitional Provisions and Consequential Amendments) Act 2009 and Fair Work (State Referral and Consequential and Other Amendments) Act 2009.  In particular, the changes made to the Federal Court Rules are consequential upon:

·               the enactment of the Fair Work Act 2009 and the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Act 2009; and

·               the amendments to the Federal Court Act of Australia 1976 that create a General Division and a Fair Work Division of the Court. 

 

The amendments have not been the subject of consultation as they are of a minor nature and do not alter the substance of the Federal Court Rules.

 

Details of the Rules are in Attachment 1

 

The Rules commence on 1 July 2009.
