SAET is making changes

From July 2019, SAET is introducing new processes that will streamline how individuals and organisations interact with the Tribunal:

  • All forms have been revised with new Word and/or PDF versions now available on the SAET Forms page.
  • Some forms are available to complete and submit online, with the remainder to progressively shift to online applications in the coming months.
  • Online applications will result in faster processing and earlier advice of hearing dates.
  • Eventually, the Word and PDF versions of forms will be removed.
  • This is the first round of improvements as SAET shifts to a new electronic case management system.
  • The new system will deliver operational efficiencies and enable SAET staff to focus on adding value to Tribunal proceedings.
  • Further changes will occur over the course of 2019 and all will be in accordance with existing Acts, Regulations and Rules.
  • Some changes may require an update to SAET’s Practice Directions.
  • Find out more about how SAET is changing here.

Rudduck and Karpathakis List 
The Tribunal has determined that it will place in a separate list, all cases for which the Supreme Court decisions in the matters of RTWSA v Rudduck (SCCIV 1102/2017) and RTWSA v Karpathakis (SCCIV 1098/2017) will be persuasive on any resolution.

This list will be known as the Rudduck and Karpathakis List and will be managed by the President. It is expected that this case management approach will free up time for busy Presidential Members and representatives and relieve pressure on Tribunal resources.

Emails have been sent to representatives for matters that have been placed in the Rudduck and Karpathakis List advising that previously listed dates have been vacated with liberty to apply.

Enquiries regarding the Rudduck and Karpathakis List should be directed to sarah.jhunjhunwala@sa.gov.au.
