Unfair Dismissal and Adverse Action
Unfair dismissal and adverse action claims can be detrimental to a business, not only in terms of its reputation but costing unnecessary amounts of management time and money. Businesses must ensure they have the right processes in place to avoid claims, or if one does arise, to deal with it efficiently and effectively.
Due to the complex nature of unfair dismissal and adverse action claims – some workers are covered by the national workplace relations system, while others have recourse to State laws – experienced advisors are often required to help navigate this challenge for businesses.
