What is an unfair dismissal?
An unfair dismissal happens when you are dismissed from employment in a harsh, unjust or unreasonable manner.
Harsh means the dismissal was disproportionate to the offence that you committed.
Unjust means your employer did not have a valid reason to sack you.
Unreasonable is when your employer acted unreasonably during the dismissal, or did not give you procedural fairness.
An unfair dismissal also happens when it is not a genuine redundancy.
And if you work for a business with 15 or less people, your dismissal will be considered unfair if it does not happen in accordance with the Small Business Fair Dismissal Code.
SO, YOU HAVE BEEN UNFAIRLY DISMISSED –
WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO FIX IT?
If you have been unfairly dismissed from employment, monetary compensation can help pay the bills while you search for other work or until you are reinstated.
The maximum amount you are eligible to receive is 26-weeks pay, although most claims settle for less than this.
