It’s been 10 years since the decision of Baird v Northern Territory of Australia outlined the core elements of privilege as it extends to the Work Health jurisdiction. In this time, the Court has diverged on the use that can be made of “privileged” material and the power of the Court to direct its own proceedings. This session will examine the sometimes-controversial topic of surveillance footage in particular, and will cover a broader discussion around the types of privilege claimable, the application of the Work Health Court Rules and the potential future direction of this issue.
