Review by the State Administrative Tribunal

Decisions of the Tribunal are reviewable by the State Administrative Tribunal (SAT).  Such matters fall within the SAT’s review jurisdiction, and are conducted by way of a hearing de novo.  In other words, the SAT is not confined to matters that were before the Tribunal and may consider new material whether or not it existed at the time of the Tribunal hearing.  The purpose of the SAT’s review is to produce the correct and preferable decision at the time of the decision upon review.

The SAT may affirm the Tribunal’s decision, vary the Tribunal’s decision, or set aside the Tribunal’s decision, and either substitute its own decision or send the matter back to the Tribunal for reconsideration.

The Tribunal’s decision remains in place whilst the SAT considers the matter.
