Date uploaded:

Although resort to contempt proceedings is not a common occurrence in the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT), it is useful to consider the circumstances in which such a proceeding might be brought, the matters which should be ventilated at a hearing, and the circumstances in which an order might be made. Care must be taken to prove a contempt has occurred.
