Advocacy and Representation

Unfair Dismissals Direct has helped over 1,000 dismissed employees secure justice. We are passionate about helping employees who have been treated poorly in the workplace.

We are different from the others. We are taking a fresh approach to unfair dismissal representation.

We provide expert unfair dismissal representation, using our advocacy skills to secure the best outcome for you, as quickly as possible. That includes clearing your name so that it becomes easier for you to get another job, and seeking compensation for you.

Unlike some organisations who also represent employers, Unfair Dismissals Direct only acts for employees. There is no conflict of interest – we only seek justice for dismissed employees. That’s right: Unfair Dismissals Direct has never represented an employer.

Unfair Dismissals Direct is committed to fairness for all employees, not just those who can afford to pay expensive lawyers. We will consider representing any employee, not just those on higher incomes. Some unfair dismissal representatives only assist those with higher earnings, so they can charge more. We don’t think that’s fair. Unfair dismissal legislation was enacted to assist the most vulnerable employees. This means being willing to represent those employees on lower incomes who find it difficult to enforce their workplace rights and may not be in a strong bargaining position.

One of our unfair dismissal experts will undertake a confidential and free assessment of your case, considering the information you provide. If we believe you have a claim and we are able to assist, we will offer to represent you, with our No Win No Fee Guarantee, on our standard terms and conditions. It’s that simple.

After you have retained us, we will complete all documentation and lodge your claim in the appropriate tribunal, ensuring that your former employer becomes aware that you are competently represented. We believe this has the potential to add thousands of dollars to a compensation payment, and can ensure you are taken seriously by your former employer. We are well known by leading employers and their representatives, because we represent dismissed employees every day.

We bring claims in various tribunals, not just the Fair Work Commission. For this reason, our industrial advocates work out of offices around Australia.

We will correspond with your former employer or their representative on your behalf. You do not have to speak, unless you want to. We do all the heavy lifting for you.

Most claims brought by Unfair Dismissals Direct are finalised quickly. In rare cases, an employer will attempt to challenge jurisdiction. In those cases, you won’t be left on your own. We will explain the process to you, and outline your options moving forward. We often respond to a jurisdictional objection by preparing, filing and serving an outline of submissions, so the employer knows we won’t give up.

We regularly come up against Australia’s largest employers. No company is too big or too small. Contact us for a free and confidential case assessment today.
