Representational Conflicts of interest

All ASMOFQ members are entitled to equitable representation. It is possible that ASMOFQ may be called on to represent individuals on different sides of the same dispute. In this circumstance, different industrial staff will provide advice and representation to the different members involved, and respects each member's confidentiality. In rare cases and with the permission of the Executive the second party to contact ASMOFQ may be offered outsourced representation.

Pre-existing issues

If an individual joining the ASMOFQ requires assistance with an existing problem, or where the ASMOFQ is satisfied that the problem was pre-existing, a service fee equivalent to one year’s subscriptions must be paid on joining and the member must sign up to commence payment from the date of joining which will commence in addition to the fee. In these instances the ASMOFQ will provide information and advice only but not representation in relation to the pre-existing issue.
