Even over the festive season, the FWC continues to operate, advising that the 21-day limit for unfair dismissal/adverse actions will still be enforced.
See my FREE resource “Extension of Time in the Fair Work Commission”. This could save you $thousands!
There is a 21-day time limit for lodging unfair dismissal applications and general protections dismissal applications. It is very important that you get your application in before the deadline.
We count the 21 days from the date your dismissal took effect.
If the deadline falls on a weekend or a public holiday, we will extend the time limit to the next day. This deadline still applies even if our office is closed.
