Remember...

The quality of any settlement depends on the quality of representation.

But you only have 21 days from the date of the unfair dismissal to lodge a claim

What is Unfair Dismissal

What is Unfair Dismissal?

Unfair dismissal is when an employee is dismissed from their job in a harsh, unjust or unreasonable manner. A release of an employee or dismissal may be determined to be unfair because it was not justified on the facts or that the process followed was inadequate or it was harsh in all the circumstances of the particular case. Each case relies on its own circumstances.
Conciliation

Conciliations

The Fair Work Commission conducts conciliations (and if necessary arbitrations) on cases of unfair dismissal. Most unfair dismissal cases (over 80%) are resolved at a conciliation, which is a voluntary and informal telephone meeting, held about 3-4 weeks after your claim is lodged. If your case can’t be resolved at conciliation it can proceed to an arbitration before a Member of the Commission.
Arbitration

Arbitrations

This is a formal process, where if the parties are not able to agree to a solution the Fair Work Commission can determine the outcome based on formal evidence. Where there is a dispute to the facts the Commission Member will determine the matter on the balance of probabilities. This decision would only be made after the parties have had a chance to present their evidence and arguments.
Testimonials about our team
  • My recent dismissal after many years of service was abrupt, unfair and very harsh. ... I contacted some well known lawyers and was shocked that initial consultation to determine whether I have a case would cost a 'bomb' adding to the financial stress due to the dismissal! Garry from JustRelations is God-sent! He is highly experience with trail of successful outcomes for his clients and a strong negotiator! He was able to quickly advise and guide me in the direction to pursue justice. ... I would highly recommend anyone in the same predicament to contact him.

  • Nick helped me in my unfair dismissal case against a World Fortune 500 company. And helped me to win a very big compensation considering my short working period with the company. As a shy immigrant from Non-English speaking country , I am very thankful to Nick's model- there is no big upfront charges before the first evaluation of the case. I remember all the other companies I contacted charges me about $ 500 somethings, if not for Nick I probably would have given up to seek justice for myself-just the upfront payment is too big. During his work for my case, Nick demonstrated strong professionalism and determination for justices, etc. He is to be trusted and a good IR!

  • My unfair dismissal case was handled by Tom and settled during conciliation. I was very pleased with Tom's approach, his passion to serve justice and ability to secure a great outcome for me. I'm grateful for his honest approach and dedication to take the matter to a higher jurisdiction if it became necessary. I highly recommend Tom & the Just Relations team.
