A Victorian Chamber member contacted the Workplace Relations helpline for advice on terminating an employee. The employer believed that the employee would be likely to launch an unfair dismissal claim and wanted advice and support before dismissing the employee.
The Victorian Chamber consultant was able to talk the employer through all the steps required to defend an unfair dismissal claim and ensure that all the necessary procedures had been followed and all supporting paperwork was in place.
The employee launched an unfair dismissal claim, in which the Victorian Chamber represented the employer at conciliation, and when that was unsuccessful, at the unfair dismissal arbitration. The employer's ability to demonstrate that all appropriate procedures had been followed and provide written evidence to that effect resulted in the claim being dismissed and the employer's decision upheld.
