If you've been terminated from your employment and feel that the circumstances surrounding it were unfair, unreasonable, or harsh, you may be able to make a claim for unfair dismissal. This area of law can be complicated, but our experienced employment advocates can provide guidance and support to help you through the process.
To make an unfair dismissal claim, you must meet certain criteria under the Fair Work Act 2009 or similar state legislation. You're considered to have been dismissed if your employer ended your employment or if you were forced to resign due to conduct by your employer that left you with no reasonable choice (constructive dismissal).
Act now! There is a strict 21-day time limit for making an unfair dismissal claim.
