Q - How long does it take to get a settlement if I was unfairly dismissed?
A - This is dependent on whether the employer is willing to meet to try and resolve the matter. Although employers may not agree to have a private meeting most are willing to attend mediation at the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and a high percentage of the matters are resolved there.
Q - What if the employer refuses to attend mediation?
A - If this is the case a payment needs to be paid to the Employment Relations Authority and the employer is directed to attend mediation.
Q - How much compensation can I get if I was unfairly dismissed?
A - I often say to people that although compensation is important it’s not the most important factor in resolving an employment dispute. Often both parties are looking for closure and getting a reference may have far more value than a lump sum payout. Obviously both are what the employee is looking for and that is what we try to obtain for our clients.
Q - If the matter is not resolved at mediation what is the next step?
A- If negotiation has not been successful at mediation the next level is having an investigative meeting at the Employment Relations Authority. Rather than both parties negotiating a settlement, the authority member considers the evidence provided and makes their decision.
