Unfair Dismissal - War stories from both sides
You will receive the Zoom link to join the session 1-2 business days prior to the forum. A further reminder email with this link will be sent on the morning of the forum.


NSW Illawarra Network

The session provides an overview of various unfair dismissal experiences from both sides of the employment relationship. The session covers typical employer (Respondent) experiences, and also employee (Applicant) experiences. The session contrasts those experiences and highlights the different strategies, tactics and positional strengths and weaknesses experienced by the various parties.

Participants will gain unique and practical first-hand insights into the unfair dismissal scheme through real-life examples of difficult dismissal disputes. Attendees will become better equipped to deal with unfair dismissal processes having had an understanding of what goes on for both sides of the dispute.

HR professionals are regularly required to advise and partner with line management during disciplinary processes, restructures and other interventions which often result in the termination of employment. Demystifying the risks and understanding the scheme will improve advice and ensure advice is competent, balanced and consistent with law.

The forum will commence with a presentation followed by a Q&A session on the issues that the presentation covers.

This forum is suitable for:

 - HR Business partner
