A worker has lost her chance to make an unfair dismissal claim after ‘Employee Dismissals’ failed to pay a filing fee.
The internet-based company didn’t respond to multiple Fair Work Commission requests to pay the fee before the strict 21-day deadline.
As a result of the mistake, the worker has forever lost her right to make an unfair dismissal claim against her former employer.
The Commission said Employee Dismissals showed a “surprising level of ineptitude or disorganisation”.
Employment law experts say the incident is another reminder to exercise caution when engaging internet-based companies for assistance with unfair dismissal claims.
