Bahamas Industrial Tribunal goes digital with e-filing

Litigants, advocates, and legal representatives accessing the Bahamas Industrial Tribunal will now be able to file their cases at any time, from anywhere – including the Family Islands, following the launch of an e-filing and case management system at the Tribunal. Indira Francis, president of the Tribunal said, ‘This is a historic day for the Industrial Tribunal as well as for courts in The Bahamas. Individuals requesting services from the Tribunal now have a much more convenient way to do so using our new Folio e-Filing portal’. The development falls in line with Chief Justice Brian Moree’s recent announcement about the total digital  transformation of the Bahamian court system through a multi-year ‘e-services’.
