The case law on this matter has recently been extended and clarified in a case in the Federal Magistrates Court of Australia
called Vong v Sika Australia Pty Ltd  FMCA, where the court found an employee had the right to be represented by a union representative during disciplinary proceedings.
In 2001, the Federal Magistrates Court of Australia was given jurisdiction to hear and determine applications for judicial review under the Migration Act 1958 (Cth), (83) and soon developed a large workload.
Recently, an enhanced system of electronic lodgement--eLodgement, eSearch and eAccess (and much else besides)--called 'MyFiles' has been developed cooperatively with the Family Court of Australia and the Federal Magistrates Court of Australia. This is a highly innovative system which will be accessible through one 'Commonwealth Law Courts Portal'.
