When someone loses their job they may feel they were sacked or made redundant in a way that did not follow the right process. If this happens, they may be able to apply to us to help resolve the issue. This starts a legal process. If an issue can not be resolved, we may decide the outcome.
Types of dismissal and termination
Check before you apply which type of dismissal is relevant to you.
If a dismissal meets the definition of 'unfair', an employee can ask for help.
Dismissal under general protections
An employer can't fire an employee for an illegal (prohibited) reason.
Only a few types of employee are eligible for unlawful termination.
A person can only be made redundant if it is a genuine and legal redundancy.
