MKI Legal has a significant amount of expertise advising in regards to redundancy matters. We are able to advise on whether
- you have been paid correctly;
- the correct redundancy procedure has been followed;
- the redundancy can be challenged, and whether such a challenge gives rise to further compensation.
We often challenge redundancies on behalf of employees by filing either a general protections or an unfair dismissal claim. We are able to advise you whether you can file such a claim to obtain compensation.
We find that over 90% of the claims we lodge challenging redundancies result in a settlement where our clients are paid compensation.
If a claim is commenced, the court requires the employer and employee to undergo a mediation. This is where a majority of matters settle.
If you wish to challenge a redundancy, you must lodge a claim within 21 days from your employment ending.
