Yes! Strict time limits do apply when making an employment law claim. You only have 21 days from your dismissal to make an unfair dismissal claim or you will be precluded from doing so.  

Remedies for employment disputes can vary depending on the type of dispute.  

In unfair dismissal claims, some of the key considerations include: 

  • Your duration of employment with the business 
  • Your employment history 
  • Your income history 
  • The income you would have likely earned in the future if you had not been unfairly dismissed (including any incremental increases or promotions) 
  • The conduct of your employer 
  • Your conduct 
  • Your decision whether to be reinstated in your previous position, claim compensation, or pursue other remedies. 

In claims relating to discrimination, harassment, bullying, abuse or assault, some of the key considerations include: 

  • The nature of the act/s against you 
  • The effect the act/s had on your ability to work, earn an income, or undertake your usual daily duties 
  • Whether you have suffered physical or psychological injuries as a result  
  • Your personal circumstances and losses sustained. 

There is no set timeframe we can indicate for your claim to be resolved. The length of time your claim may take to resolve will depend upon the type of your claim and what steps are required to progress to a resolution.
