Employment Dispute

I saw a new client before my one week break.  He’d been sacked out of the blue.  It was clearly an unfair dismissal and he was under the Fair Work Australia $129,300 threshold, but he was paid 4 months’ salary in lieu of notice and the maximum payout is 6 months, less legal fees, so it was not pragmatic to fight it.  However, he was not actually told why he was sacked.

They also kicked him out of a small business which he had been running next door, but using their computers for records, with the employer’s consent, mind you.

An e-mail and a telephone call later from me, and some private discussions between him and the CEO from my office and he had an explanation for his dismissal, a good reference, and an extra $5k, which more than covered my fee.  And he was going to quit soon anyway!
