- 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

Who can Apply?
The Fair Work Commission is limited by law in the unfair dismissal claims that it can deal with – this is called its ‘jurisdiction’.
To make an application you must:
- lodge your application within 21 days of dismissal becoming effective
- be covered by the national workplace relations system
- be an employee who has been dismissed, and
- meet eligibility criteria, including the minimum employment period.
An employer can lodge a jurisdictional objection (PDF) if they believe their dismissed employee does not fall within the Commission’s jurisdiction. This means the employer is saying the Commission does not have the power to deal with the claim. If the objection is upheld the unfair dismissal claim will be dismissed. For more details, get in contact with us today to discuss your options.
What Does the Law Say?
Section 387 of the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) sets out the criteria for whether a dismissal is “harsh, unjust or unreasonable”. There are eight key factors that the FWC must take into account, including:
- Whether there was a valid reason;
- Whether the employer notified the employee of the reason;
- Whether the employee had the opportunity to respond;
- Whether there was unreasonable refusal to allow a support person to attend discussions relating to the dismissal;
- Whether the employer had warned the employee about unsatisfactory performance, if applicable;
- The size of the employer’s enterprise and its relevant procedures;
- Any absence of a dedicated HR manager; and
- Any other relevant matters.
