In accordance with

Hesami v Hong Australia Corporation Pty Ltd [2011] NSWWCCPD 14. Roche DP.

50. The High Court considered the meaning of “in accordance with” in Walker v Wilson [1991] HCA 8; 99 ALR 1. That case concerned whether a worker had undertaken a journey “in accordance with” the terms and conditions of his employment. Deane, Dawson, Toohey and McHugh JJ held (at 11) that, in the context of the journey provisions in that case, the words “in accordance with” should be construed as meaning “in conformity with” or “consistently with”. This decision is essentially consistent with the Macquarie Dictionary definition of “accordance” as “agreement; conformity”.
