Dealing with unfair termination

Unfair termination can incorporate issues of employment type, award and enterprise agreement coverage, time limits for claims, the provisions of the Fair Work Act 2009 and the Small Business Fair Termination Code. The definition of ‘termination’ can include a situation where you resigned but were forced to do so because of conduct, or a course of conduct, engaged in by your employer. This is commonly referred to as 'constructive dismissal'.
