The case was for entitlements for that of a full time employee under the National Employment Standards and the Airline Operations Ground Staff Award 2010.
I have lodged an appeal from the ruling by his Honour Judge Jarrett in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia,
What happens when a person is forced to represent himself when he can no longer afford counsel will shock even the most seasoned lawyer. Unfair trial tactics and deceit.
The public is led to believe that it is the self rep who will cause the difficulties;
example- Civil Trials Bench Book
Where a case is brought by an unrepresented litigant, and material required for the adequate determination of that case is not available, or is not presented to the court, it is not necessarily the case that the court should itself undertake an investigation of whether such material exists, and if so, seek to have it brought before the court so that it can be considered. It may sometimes be appropriate for the court to attempt to have such material made available, particularly if the deficiency of the material is obvious and can be remedied without prejudice to the other side. Otherwise, it would generally conflict with the court’s position, as an impartial adjudicator, for it to take steps to seek to improve an unrepresented litigant’s case by investigating whether there is more material available to support that case than has been presented to the court, and then taking steps to obtain it.
The absolute reverse is true in this case.
Everyone is entitled to a fair trial.
It is my goal to be able to secure the services of a Barrister for the pending appeal in the Federal Court of Australia,
Your support will go along way to raise awareness about employee entitlements and in the case of a successful outcome a precedence will be set in case law to assist other employees who may find themselves in a similar situation in future.
Thank you for your support.
