Fee for Service Policy

From time to time the AMA (ACT) may decline to provide workplace relations and associated services to members or may charge an additional fee for service. 

In its sole discretion, AMA (ACT) may provide workplace relations and associated services to non-members on a fee for service basis.

AMA (ACT) reserves the right to decline assistance or provide assistance on a conditional or other basis to New members. AMA (ACT) may exercise its discretion in cases where a member of less than 12 months standing requests assistance in relation to an issue which was known to the member prior to joining AMA (ACT).

If the AMA (ACT) exercises its discretion to provide assistance to a New member, it may request the payment of an additional fee for service having regard to the individual circumstances of the new member.

Generally, Members receive workplace relations and associated services, of a routine or less complex nature, as part of their membership.  However, when a matter is of a more complex, time-consuming or lengthy nature, the AMA (ACT) reserves the right to decline further assistance or to provide assistance on a conditional or other basis.

If the AMA (ACT) exercises its discretion to provide further assistance to a member, it may request the payment of an additional fee for service having regard to the individual circumstances of the member.
