The Industrial Relations Court of Australia (IRCA) (1993 - 2018) was a superior court of law and equity, established by the Australian Parliament under the Industrial Relations Reform Act 1993 which amended the Industrial Relations Act 1988. In 1996, as a consequence of the Workplace Relations and other Legislation Amendment Act, Court's jurisdiction was transferred to other Courts, mainly the Federal Court of Australia. Despite the transfer of jurisdiction, the Industrial Relations Court of Australia continued to exist at law until the last of its judges retired from office on 11 September 2018.
