Lost your job because of COVID-19?

Employees have only 21 days to lodge an application for unfair dismissal after they are dismissed.  If you are stood down without pay unlawfully you will be entitled to unpaid wages.  Everyone’s circumstances are different so it’s worth getting some free legal advice.  Contact NRCLC on 6621 1000 or 1800 689 889 to book an appointment.
