Some of the most common litigation in Workplace matters includes:



Termination of employment may result in a claim of unfair dismissal, with the reasons for the dismissal and/or the procedure used, put under the microscope.  



Where your employment has been terminated or adversely affected because you have relied on a workplace right, a claim may be made. This type of application may also include discrimination claims. 


Strict time limits on applications means employees and employers should seek legal advice as soon as possible.
