Unfair Dismissal, Unlawful Dismissals, Discrimination, Claims and Dispute Issues
All employees regardless of who they work for, or the size of the company, have rights to the unfair / unlawful dismissal laws. However the Federal Government has announced in the new industrial relations laws from the 27/3/2006 if you work for a company with less than 101 employees you are exempt from bringing a unfair dismissal claim.
Regardless of the size of the company you can still bring a claim if you have been sacked for a discriminatory reason. (check on our Discrimination & Harassment page for a list).
There is alot of confusion how these industrial relations laws and Workchoices will work, if you have been sacked, regardless of the size of the employer, regardless of the circumstances, call us today and we’ll discuss the matter.
The Labour party since being elected have not changed the unfair dismissal laws. There is a lot of confusion in the workplace. There are various other prospects against employers, including deceptive and misleading conduct, reasonable notice claims (up to nine months pay depending on your circumstances), breach of contract and sexual harassment claims under state OH&S; laws. (We will refer you to the appropriate law firm or authority if required).
We have run many successful claims against some of the largest companies in Australia, both publicly listed and private as non-lawyer advocates.
Justice and fairness applies equally to every body
If you think that “justice” has anything to do with right or wrong or fairness you are sadly mistaken, Justice is concerned only with enforcing the law and has little to do with the average person’s concept of fairness. Most employers treat their workforce fairly, however some Employers don’t care about you, or your family. Their business is about making money, they have no respect for the industrial relations and discrimination laws and nothing else matters other than them. Don’t be convinced you have no rights, or you cannot win, you can!, don’t be mistreated or unfairly sacked and let the employer get away with it.
