Unfair Dismissal

Unfair dismissal and reinstatement applications are made to the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (the Commission) in circumstances where a worker believes that they have been unfairly dismissed by their employer. These applications are governed by Division 2 of Part 2 of Chapter 8 of the Industrial Relations Act 2016

A dismissal will be considered "unfair" if it was harsh, unjust, or unreasonable.

If you have been dismissed from your job and you believe that it was done unfairly then you may make a reinstatement application.
