the South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal
SACAT is a state tribunal that helps South Australians resolve issues within specific areas of law, either through agreement at a conference, conciliation or mediation, or through a decision of the Tribunal at hearing. SACAT also conducts reviews of Government decisions.
We understand that current circumstances are creating challenges for all organisations.
