Unfair Dismissals and Adverse Action

Advising employers on unfair dismissal and adverse action claims

Unfair dismissal and adverse action claims can be costly to businesses in terms of both time and money.

In addition, claims for unfair dismissal and adverse action can be complex. Some workers are covered by the national workplace relations system, while others have recourse to state laws. Businesses with fewer than 15 employees are covered by the Small Business Fair Dismissal Code.

As a result, businesses should ensure they have the right processes in place so that they are not hit with a claim when they least expect it. In the event they are faced with a claim, they need to be equipped to resolve it as quickly as possible.

How FCB Group can help businesses defend a claim for unfair dismissal or adverse action

At FCB Group, we provide our clients with pragmatic and commercially astute advice on unfair, unlawful and wrongful termination of employment.

As a rule, employers learn that they are involved in an unfair dismissal matter only when they receive a copy of the dismissed employee’s application. Consequently, it can come as a complete surprise.

As experts in employment law, we have a deep understanding of the complexities of unfair dismissal and adverse action. We are equipped to evaluate a claim promptly, and to come up with a response.

Our team of lawyers and workplace relations consultants can also offer strategic advice on minimising the risks of unfair dismissal and adverse action claims.

In the event that one of our clients is faced with a claim, we offer expert legal representation based on our extensive experience of working in this area. Over the years, we have defended a large number of claims not only in the Fair Work Commission but in both federal and state courts.
