The Fair Work Commission has eased the timetable for the award casual terms review, pushing the hearing back by eight days towards the end of June.

The change, outlined in a statement issued on Friday, followed an April 22 conference (see transcript) convened by President Iain Ross at which he acknowledged he had provided an insufficent “gap” between the deadline for reply submissions and the hearing.

The changes push the two-day hearing date back from June 16 to June 24.

Submissions on the issues raised in Commission’s discussion paper are due on May 24 and reply submissions on June 16.

Justice Ross, vice presidents Adam Hatcher and Joe Catanzariti, Deputy President Michael Easton and Commissioner Michelle Bissett will review and vary the casual terms in six awards and this will provide a template for changes to the 150 or so remaining awards.

The review of the awards must be finalised by the statutory deadline of September 27.
