The Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) provides a right for all federal system employees to be paid a redundancy if their contract of employment is terminated because there is no longer a requirement for that particular role to be performed by anyone. The important thing to remember is that a redundancy must be ‘genuine’ and if you or anyone you know feels that you have suffered from an action of unfair dismissal, there are many employment lawyers in the FindLaw Directory who will be able to assist with your employment matter.
