Current version for 25 March 2020 to date (accessed 10 April 2020 at 10:15)
Part 8 Section 244
244   Presumption as to reason for dismissal
(cf IR Act, s 95)
(1)  In proceedings for a reinstatement order under this Part it is to be presumed that the injured worker was dismissed because he or she was not fit for employment as a result of the injury received.
(2)  That presumption is rebutted if the employer satisfies the Industrial Relations Commission that the injury was not a substantial and operative cause of the dismissal of the worker.
