Where an industrial tribunal finds that an employee has been unfairly dismissed they will consider whether to make an order for re-instatement in the previous job or re-engagement in another job. An order for re-instatement or re-engagement includes compensation for arrears of pay between the date of dismissal and the order taking effect.
The Agency’s Enquiry Point is available to employers, employees, trade unions and others. Enquiry Point advisors provide information and advice on a wide range of employment matters. The Enquiry Point is also an important contact point for identifying circumstances, or clients, who would benefit from being referred to other Agency services.
The Enquiry Point provides clear, confidential, independent and impartial advice to assist the caller in resolving issues in the workplace.
While the advisors cannot provide a legal opinion they can help callers gain a better understanding of their rights and responsibilities as well as identifying possible options to help resolve their issues.
