What are my rights if I have been unfairly sacked by my boss?

Answer

Permanent, part-time and casual employees that are regularly employed by a particular employer for at least six months are covered by unfair dismissal laws.

If you feel you have been dismissed without good reason you should contact a lawyer or community legal centre as soon as possible. Unfair dismissal claims must be lodged with Fair Work Australia within 14 days.

For more information about your rights, contact the NSW Office of Industrial Relations NSW (OIR). The OIR can also help you with enquiries about unpaid wages and fines.
