  • Who are the decision-makers? identifying those described (in case law) as decision makers, who they are and how to select them;
  • Approaches to and identifying evidence under the relevant part of the Fair Work Act 2009¬†and the resulting possible discharge of a reverse onus; and
  • Remedies available under general protections, with a focus on sections 545 and 546 of the Fair Work Act 2009
