Representing employers defending unfair dismissal and employment related claims
Unfair dismissal claims are heard initially by teleconference.
The conciliator conducting the teleconference endeavours to ascertain if there was a valid reason for termination and if the employer accorded the employee procedural fairness.
If the claim is not settled at this point it proceeds to a formal hearing in the Fair Work Commission.
Once you receive a claim alleging unfair dismissal we will assess the claim by your former employee and will provide you with appropriate advice to defend the claim and minimize the compensation you may pay ( if any) to settle the claim.
As part of our service we will advise if you have any grounds to have the application dismissed and we will prepare and file your employers response to the claim and vigorously represent your company in the unfair dismissal conciliation hearing.
If the claim is not settled at conciliation, we can and will, advocate on your behalf in formal proceedings before the Fair Work Commission.
