....I am having major work avoidance strategy happening right now! This is some of the stuff I am supposed to be reviewing/understanding!
"In the pragmatic and functional approach, four factors are considered to determine the appropriate standard of review. They are the nature of the question under review law, fact or mixed law and fact the expertise of the decision maker relative to that of the reviewer; the statutory mechanism of review; and the purposes of the legislation and the particular provision."

and

"In construing the regulation in that case, he drew on five sources. They were the mischief sought to be cured by the regulation, the regulatory scheme, the grammatical and ordinary sense of the words of the regulation, the regulation-making power of the Act pursuant to which the regulation was enacted and the general context of the regulation. "

No wonder my head hurts!

I have been reading for a week and a half straight. All day, everyday. If I don't start doing the actual job soon, everything is going to get jumbled in my head!!!!

Is it the weekend yet? Do you think a week and a half back from maternity leave is too early to call in a sick day?

Can you claim Worker's Comp for a work induced headache?

Right... that kind of stuff drives me insane. There is NO reason to make language that complex. Someone who has a PhD decided to use it.

I understand the what he is talking about, but I don't understand why he's using ever $.50 word possible!

I got to where it says "pragmatic" and didn't read further for fear of brain pain

Good luck with that

I got through the first sentence before my attention span went! I hate it when we have to read medical journal articles and we have to look up a lot of the words because we have never heard of them. Why can't they just write in plain english???
