Unfair dismissal process under the Fair Work Act

Definition of unfair dismissal under the Fair Work Act provisions.

Under the Fair Work Act, a person has been unfairly dismissed, if the Fair Work Commission (the Commission) is satisfied that an employee (who is protected from unfair dismissal) has been dismissed and the dismissal: 
  • was harsh, unjust or unreasonable, and
  • was not consistent with the Small Business Fair Dismissal Code (in the case of employees of a small business), and 
  • was not a case of genuine redundancy.
