What are the remedies for unfair dismissal?

If a dismissal is found to be harsh, unjust or unreasonable, the grant of a remedy by the Fair Work Commission is discretionary and not automatic.

If the Fair Work Commission makes a finding that you have been an unfairly dismissed, it may make an order reinstating your employment or for your employer to pay you compensation.  

An order for compensation will generally only be made where the Fair Work Commission considers it is not appropriate to make an order reinstating your employment.
