Appeals

A determination of an arbitrator on findings of fact and law are binding upon the parties. An appeal may be made to the District Court of Western Australia:

  • where a question of law is involved and defined financial thresholds are met; or
  • where a question of law is involved and, in the opinion of the District Court the matter is of such importance that, in the public interest, an appeal should lie.

In any other case, leave to appeal may be granted where a question of law is involved.

An appeal to the District Court must be made within 28 days from when the Arbitrator provides the parties with the written reasons for the determination. The District Court may affirm, vary, quash, substitute or made an addition to the original Arbitrator decision.

For more information, see the Previous Decisions page.
