Unfair Dismissal and Adverse Action

Oh no. It’s all gone pear shaped. You didn’t get advice earlier, and now it’s time to attend the Fair Work Commission.

  • Was there a valid reason for termination? Was the termination harsh, unjust, or unreasonable?
  • Was the termination related to conduct issues? Or was it related to… something else???
  • Was the employer a “small business”?

At Access Law Group we regularly act for employers and employees in the first type of case – Unfair Dismissal – and the second type of case – Adverse Action.

Claims have to be brought within 21 days of the termination or last day of work. A response is then filed, and the parties attend conciliation by telephone with a member of the Fair Work Commission.

Our processes are designed to quickly find out all of the circumstances of the dispute.

We have fixed fees up to the end of the conciliation – being when most matters resolve or ‘settle’.

If the matter does not resolve, we are experienced in taking the matter to hearing in the Fair Work Commission or Federal Circuit Court.
