Unfair Dismissal

National system employees are protected from unfair dismissal under the provisions of the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) and if a dismissal is found to be unfair, harsh, unjust or unreasonable, the Act affords a number of remedies provided that the person is a national system employee, and that all of the administrative matters are fulfilled. If you have any questions or concerns in regards to an issue of unfair dismissal, or any other related employment matter, there are many legal practitioners Australia wide on the FindLaw Directory who will be able to help.
