Rules regulating the Practice and Procedure for Resolving Disputes

14. Costs

 

 

1) An award or order of the Commission, or an agreement of the parties, may allow the fees of one advocate and one attorney between any parties to proceedings before the Commission, unless the Commission on application authorises the fees of additional advocates and attorneys.

 

2) The fees of any additional advocate authorised in terms of rule 14.1 must not exceed one half of those of the first advocate, unless the Commission directs otherwise.

 

3) The costs between any parties to proceedings before the Commission must be calculated and taxed by the taxing officer at the tariff determined by the award, ruling or agreement. If the award, ruling or agreement does not specify a tariff, the tariff applicable in the High Court will apply.

 

4) Qualifying fees for expert witnesses may not be recovered as costs between any parties to proceedings before the Commission unless otherwise directed by the Commission during the proceedings.
