Brydens Lawyers understand that both employees and employers have rights and obligations to each other so as to fulfil contractual and statutory obligations. For this reason, it is important to have the best legal advice and representation on your side when issues arise in the workplace. Knowing and understanding your rights is part of the solution and often the best legal advice and representation is required to assist in resolving any concerns that may arise from a conflict of those rights and obligations in the workplace. This is also the case when it comes to matters of workplace harassment and discrimination cases.
An unfair dismissal is one where the employee is dismissed from their job in a harsh, unjust or unreasonable manner. There are many cases which help us decide whether the dismissal has been unfair. For a decision as to whether you have been unfairly dismissed contact Brydens Lawyers. There are a number of requirements which need to be satisfied before a claim can be made. Firstly the employee must be employed for at least six months before they can apply for unfair dismissal. Also, if employees are working for a small business they have to be employed for at least 12 months before they can apply. There are special laws which pertain to small businesses. A small business is one defined as any business which has less than 15 employees. There is a small business fair dismissal code which provides protection against unfair dismissal claims against small business owners.
