An unfair dismissal case is where an employee challenges his or her dismissal as harsh, unjust and unreasonable. A dismissal may be determined to be unfair because it was not justified on the facts or that the process followed was inadequate or it was harsh in all the circumstances of the particular case. Each unfair dismissal case relies on its own circumstances.
Apart from situations which are considered to be a Genuine Redundancy an employer needs a valid reason to terminate your employment either on the basis of your conduct or capacity to perform your job role.
Cases of misconduct may include such things as being chronically late for work,failure to adhere to safety procedures, failure to follow lawful directions.
Serious misconduct - where you can be terminated without notice, may incorporate behaviour such as fighting, sexual harassment or theft.
Capacity relates to how well you perform your job role, or your proficiency.
Generally where there are issues of capacity or conduct, an appropriate process should be followed, to ensure the employee is both aware that there re issues which may threaten their future employment, and has an opportunity to either respond to the allegations prior to a decision being made to terminate employment.
There are additional issues the FWA needs to consider such as the size of the employers workforce, whether the employer has a dedicated Human Resources Manager, whether the employee has the opportunity to have a support person present during the termination meeting and a catchall - '...any other factors which must be taken into account'.
