Papers to note: ABCC Litigation Policy

Thu Nov 04 2010

The Office of the Australian Building and Construction Commissioner has published its Litigation Policy, which ABC Commissioner Leigh Johns says is intended to 'promote consistency in the institution and conduct of civil penalty litigation by the ABCC'.

The policy is described as being 'based on the prosecution policy of the Commonwealth and is consistent with the litigation policy of the Fair Work Ombudsman'. The 20-point policy considers factors including the nature of evidence that has been obtained and public interest considerations.
