The Legislation

144J Appeals

(1) An appeal against a conviction for a prescribed offence does not operate to prevent a strike being incurred as a result of the commission of the offence or to prevent the taking of remedial action in respect of such a strike but an appeal does operate to suspend the operation of any such remedial action until the appeal is determined or withdrawn.

Note: If the appeal is successful and the conviction is overturned a strike based on the conviction is revoked and any remedial action taken as a result of such a strike ceases to have effect.

(2) The Director-General or the Authority may, if satisfied that circumstances have changed during the period that the operation of remedial action is suspended under this section, replace the remedial action with any remedial action that the Director-General or the Authority could have taken had those changed circumstances applied when the relevant strike was incurred.
