Ex-parte hearings

In accordance with section 143 of the Act, all parties to a proceeding will be provided with a reasonable opportunity to be heard at a hearing.

An order of the Tribunal is lawful and in effect whether or not all parties to the proceeding have presented their cases.

If a matter has been determined in the absence of a party, that party has 5 business days after they receive notice of the order to apply to have the matter re-heard.

The Tribunal may order that the matter be re-heard if the Tribunal considers it just and reasonable to do so.
