ARE YOU ELIGIBLE TO MAKE A CLAIM?

Most people generally know whether they have been dismissed unfairly or not. 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 have been decided that helps 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.

WHAT ARE YOU
ABLE TO CLAIM?

There are a number of remedies available. A claim can be made for financial compensation. Alternatively a claim can be made for reinstatement, a statement of service and for the termination to be recategorised as a resignation.

WHEN SHOULD YOU CONSULT A LAWYER ABOUT MAKING A CLAIM?
