ca Updates - CA19 update 12

QIRC moves hearing date forward to 6 November 2019

I wrote to you in UPDATE 11 regarding the original QIRC listing of the hearing for your CA19 application, which was set by the industrial commission for Thursday 14 November 2019.

However, I am pleased to report that the QIRC has changed the hearing date from 14 November 2019 to Wednesday 6 November 2019 in response to concerns QFES expressed to the industrial commission about being able to organise your backpay and other new entitlements to be paid prior to Christmas 2019 whilst the new payroll system is being implemented.

The QIRC accepted the urgency in the QFES request and brought forward the date.

As I reported in UPDATE 11, I will be in touch immediately after the hearing occurs.
