I feel I may be about to be terminated "harshly" based on unfair dismissal laws section 387. I need clarification that I have a case on which to potentially lodge an "f2 " form for unfair dismisssal remedy.I have received my only formal letter of warning on the 14th June and I beleive that tomorrow I may be fired. I do not believe I have had the opportunity to understand the issues, absorb the implications and be given the chance to overcome and correct any mistakes on my part. I also feel the allegations made are unfair - and I have requested further information in writing from my employer to which they have denied response. They also offered up an agreed action plan in the initial warning letter - but none of these actions have been followed up on.
Fair work Australia - no response - cant get through telephone line
I need clarification that I have a case on which to potentially lodge an "f2 " form for unfair dismissal remedy. Based on what you have said, you would have a very promising case to bring an unfair dismissal claim. However, you need to keep in mind that you only have 7 days from the date they terminate you to lodge an unfair dismissal claim, so you will need to contact Fair Work Australia straight away.If you're satisfied with the results of your question, then I'll ask you to please provide positive feedback so that I will get credit for the time spent on your question.
I did my law degree at the University of Queensland
