In common with courts and tribunals in other developed countries, Australia has experienced the rise of the self-represented litigant. This chapter examines innovations in the approaches taken by the Australian Fair Work Commission (FWC), the national employment relations tribunal, in responding to the growing number of self-represented employers and employees appearing before it or seeking redress. In particular, the chapter explores and discusses the shift towards alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and an increasing number of self-help initiatives in the context of the growing individualization of the Australian labour market and the consequent rise of self-represented litigants before the tribunal. These changes are reshaping the role of the tribunal as a third party in Australian workplace conflict resolution. © The Editor(s) (if applicable) and The Author(s) 2016.
