The next step in your unfair dismissal claim.
If you’ve been dismissed as an employee, you have the right to lodge a claim with the Fair Work Commission on the grounds that you were treated in a “harsh, unjust or unreasonable” way. You must lodge your application within 21 days of the official dismissal date, which is normally the last day you worked for your employer. You can only claim if you have been employed more than six months and earned less than $133,000.

How unfair dismissal claims work and what you can get.
The Fair Work Commission will consider your case, and could rule that your dismissal was unfair because;

  • The reason given for dismissal by your employer was not valid.
  • The reason given for dismissal by your employer did not warrant dismissal.
  • The process undertaken in relation to your dismissal was unfair.

Should the Fair Work Commission find in your favour, they may order your employer to pay compensation for your unfair dismissal. Typically this compensation is based on the salary you would have earned if the unfair dismissal did not take place…and this can be up to a maximum of 6 months pay.
