Let’s talk about unfair dismissal claims. Firstly, have you ever responded to an unfair dismissal claim? Secondly, would you know what to do and where to start?
The Fair Work Commission has a free resource called the Unfair Dismissals Benchbook. The terrific resource can assist business owners and HR Practitioners across SMEs through to large, corporate businesses. It is designed to provide information to assist in the preparation of material for matters before the Commission. It has plenty of practical examples and easy to read concepts. In addition, it reflects recent case law and rules changes. It includes information about:
- when a dismissal takes effect
- workplace investigations
- objecting to an application
- terms of settlement
- calculating compensation.
