The Industrial Court of Queensland and the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission is committed to providing high quality services to all court and commission users. The following information is intended to give some guidance to parties who have either filed an appeal with the court, an application with the commission or who are respondent to an application/appeal (the other party named in the application/appeal) and who do not wish to be represented by another party such as an industrial organisation, agent, advocate, or lawyer.
Registry staff and Associates are available to assist you with procedural advice in relation to proceedings in the court/commission, but they are not able to provide legal advice.
For Self-Represented Litigants who are appealing a decision of the Workers' Compensation Regulator under the Workers' Compensation and Rehabilitation Act 2003, you may wish to seek legal advice about your appeal. The Queensland Public Interest Law Clearing House (QPILCH) is a non-profit community legal centre which may be able to offer free and independent legal advice and assistance.
