Challenging a Disputes Tribunal decision
How can I challenge a decision of the Disputes Tribunal?
Either party can apply for a rehearing in the tribunal or can lodge an appeal to the District Court if they believe they have grounds to do so. However, the circumstances in which this can be done are limited (see below). Forms can be obtained from the District Court.
The rehearing must be applied for, or the appeal filed, within 28 days of the original decision.
Note: The original decision of the tribunal cannot be enforced if a rehearing or an appeal is granted.
