Do you think you were unfairly dismissed?
Unfair dismissals can happen in a range of situations – whether you were dismissed without a valid reason or where there was no procedural fairness (for example, if you were not given warnings about poor performance, you were not provided with notice, you were not given the opportunity to respond to any allegations made or you were not allowed to have support person with you). You may also have been unfairly dismissed if it was not case of genuine redundancy.
If you have been unfairly dismissed, you may be entitled to be reinstated and/or receive monetary compensation.
WK Lawyers can help you decide what the best course of action is for you – whether it is an unfair dismissal application, an unlawful dismissal application or a breach of contact claim (wrongful dismissal).
WK Lawyers are experienced in running dismissal matters and can help you through the unfair dismissal process, providing you initial upfront advice in our free 30-minute meeting, as well as affordable advice and representation throughout the process in matters before the Fair Work Commission.
In many cases, we offer a no win, no fee arrangement, so contact us to discuss your circumstances.
→ It is important to act fast as you only have 21 days from the date of dismissal to lodge your claim.
Determining whether a redundancy is genuine can be a complex task and WK Lawyers can help you through this process. If you think your redundancy was not fair – for example you weren’t given notice of the redundancy; you weren’t consulted; or there is someone still doing your job; then you may be eligible to make an unfair dismissal application.
You may also be eligible to make an unlawful dismissal application if the decision to make you redundant was as a result of discrimination.
Give us a call to discuss your circumstances, so that we can assist you in deciding what action to take.
What is the process?
We will meet with you for our free 30-minute meeting to discuss your circumstances. It doesn’t hurt to ask.
If you decide to proceed with your matter, we will then file your claim with the Fair Work Commission.
The Fair Work Commission will list your matter for a Conciliation Conference, and WK Lawyers will represent you during the Conference. The vast majority of matters settle at this stage, and we will provide you advice throughout this conference.
If your matter doesn’t resolve at Conciliation, then your matter will be listed for hearing before the Fair Work Commission and WK Lawyers will discuss further with you this step.
