Once your appeal has been filed, it is allocated to a Member of the Commission to consider.
The Commission usually issues a Directions Order shortly after the appeal is filed. Directions Orders provide a 'road map' outlining how your appeal will be conducted, when documents are due to be filed, which documents should be filed and provided to the other party, and if/when you may need to attend the Commission for a conference or hearing.
Most appeals are dealt with 'on the papers' meaning that there may be no requirement to attend the Commission for a conference or hearing unless directed by the Member.
For more information about Directions Orders, see "Part 4: Directions Order" of the Public service appeal guide.
Once the Commission Member has considered your appeal, they will release and publish a written decision.
Parties are free to reach an agreement themselves at any time during the appeal process up until the final decision is issued by the Commission Member. If a settlement is reached or you no longer wish to proceed with your appeal for any reason, you should withdraw the appeal by filing a Form 27 - Request to discontinue proceedings.
For more information, see "Part 8: Settlements and decisions" of the Public service appeal guide.
