What we do

The Tasmanian Industrial Commission (the Commission) is established under the Industrial Relations Act 1984 with a role to hear and determine any matter arising from, or relating to, an industrial matter.

In general terms, the Commission exercises its jurisdiction in relation to:

  • making or varying awards or industrial agreements
  • approving enterprise agreements - when approving the agreement the Commission must be satisfied that the agreement meets minimum standards of employment, was not made under duress and is fair in all the circumstances
  • registering employee and employer organisations
  • conducting hearings and conciliation conferences for settling industrial disputes

The Commission also reviews applications by State Service employees in relation to selection and other actions relating to their employment.
