The Tribunal has updated its Form 25 that is used by parties to ask the Tribunal to close an application file when the parties have written and signed a settlement agreement to resolve the Application.
The new Form 25 allows an applicant to confirm that the Application has been withdrawn against respondents who have not been a party to a settlement. Where an applicant settles the dispute in writing with some of the respondents and the applicant is willing to resolve the entire Application on this basis, Form 25 now permits the applicant to terminate the Application against all respondents. This simplifies the process for closing an Application that was filed against multiple respondents.
Legal practitioners should update their files if they have blank copies of the old Form 25 saved on their computers.
