Interpreting provisions in enterprise agreements
Maddocks advised Victorian council on interpretation of redundancy provisions under its enterprise agreement.
Maddocks advised the City of Monash on the interpretation of the redundancy provisions under its enterprise agreement.
The team, led by partner Lindy Richardson, provided initial advice regarding the likely interpretation of the relevant provision, and represented the client when a dispute was lodged in the Fair Work Commission relating to the interpretation of the provision.
The matter - Belcher v City of Monash  FWC 5892 - required us to provide technical legal advice to our client to assist it to determine its course of action regarding the dispute and, ultimately, pursue this position before the Fair Work Commission. The matter was arbitrated and our client was successful in this matter.
