Why you should consult with an unfair dismissal specialist if you believe you have been unfairly dismissed.
If you believe you have been unfairly dismissed, it is a good idea to consult a specialist before taking any action. An unfair dismissal specialist has expertise in the area of Industrial Relations and will know the best way to handle your case and help you achieve the best outcome.
It is important to know what qualifies an unfair dismissal before you make an application, to avoid wasting your time and potentially, money. An unfair dismissal is when an employee is fired for reasons that may be unjust, unreasonable or too harsh. It can be considered unfair because there was no justification of facts or that the process the business followed was inadequate, or did not suit the circumstances. Surprisingly, this happens more often than you may wish to believe, this is why it is important to be aware of your options.
An unfair dismissal specialist, such as those at Australian Dismissal Services, can help you recover any losses you may have incurred from your dismissal, particularly monetary compensation for being out of a job. While they may employ qualified and experienced staff, including solicitors and barristers, these organisations are not law firms. This also means you won’t incur any law firm fees. They will provide you with advice, support, and practical assistance in regards to your case. Once it has been decided that you have, in fact, bee unfairly dismissed, they can provide you with representation and help prepare your case when appearing at the Fair Work Commission hearing. When pursuing an unfair dismissal case (it must be lodged within 21 days), the Fair Work Commission may establish that your dismissal was in fact unjustified and unfair. With this result, they may order the employer to pay you compensation, such as the salary that you would have earned if you had remained employed at that business. However, the maximum amount of compensation that can be paid is the equivalent to 6 months unemployment. No matter the circumstances or the length of time you have been unemployed, the Fair Work Commission and unfair dismissal experts are there to protect your best interests.
