An Employer is Hit With an Unfair Dismissal Claim Every 3 & Half Minutes in Australia

An analysis of the Fair Work Commission 2016-17* report reveals an employer was hit with an unfair dismissal claim every three and a half minutes last financial year.It was found that employers lost 60% of the 14,135 unfair dismissal applications brought against them in 2016-17.
With options available to employees like unions, and advocacy groups, and particularly with the rise of no-win-no-fee lawyers, it’s no surprise the employer success rate in unfair dismissal cases are dipping. Lodging an unfair dismissal case is easier than lodging a tax return.
