An unfair dismissal happens when you are sacked in a harsh, unjust or unreasonable manner. Harsh means your dismissal was disproportionate to the offence that you committed. Unjust means your employer did not have a valid reason to sack you. Unreasonable is when your employer acted unreasonably when dismissing you, or you were not given procedural fairness.
An unlawful termination happens when you are sacked for reporting your employer to a competent administrative authority, like an industry regulator, or if you participate in proceedings against your employer.
As an employee, you have a number of protected rights – these are known as your general protections. If you are dismissed for exercising one of these workplace rights, the dismissal is considered unlawful, and you may be eligible to make a general protections claim.
