We are a Community Based organization designed to assist Individuals or Groups in obtaining Justice for discrimination in the Workplace. The general belief that the Employers or the Wealthy always win is not ours as we have proven on many occasions.

Many who have attempted to battle on, without representation, have found that they have stepped into the proverbial minefield.

  • Costs begin to mount with possibly No Income.
  • Frustration builds as negotiations break down.
  • Experienced Employers know how to work the System against you.

Unfair Dismissal & Discrimination

Lodging a Claim

Lodging a Claim with the Industrial Relations, the Human Rights and Equal Opportunities Commissions, or VCAT can be complex as Employers, in many cases, look to Jurisdictional matters so that your Claim cannot be heard.

Through our private and confidential service, we will lodge an Unfair Dismissal Claim on your behalf and represent you at hearings, or in many cases negotiate a result before a Hearing Date arrives.

If you are seeking assistance or you are already Stressed and Under Pressure, we can take that pressure off you and give you the Peace of Mind you deserve.

We are the only serious advocacy organisation and website dedicated to only helping the employee, this avoids conflicts of interest and we are dedicated to helping you.

We feel strongly about unfair dismissals and ensuring the best outcome for you!

Unfair Dismissal & Discrimination

Constructive Dismissals

If you have been forced to resign, in other words, you have absolutely no choice by the conduct or behavior of the employer you are entitled to lodge an unfair dismissal claim. At the time of your resignation if you have a choice the claim will fail. You have to be able to argue it was impossible to stay there.

It is early days for the new system, employees rights have increased, call us today to discuss your situation.

Where possible we will not let the employer get away with unfairly terminating your employment, bring unnecessary stress and financial hardship to you and your family.

We will lodge an Unfair Dismissal Claim on your behalf (be aware there is a very strict 14-day rule to lodge an unfair dismissal claim in FWA) and represent you at hearings, or Negotiate a result before a Hearing Date arrives. If you are seeking assistance, you are already stressed and under pressure.

If your industrial relations, unfair dismissal or discrimination claim deserves to be run and the employer won’t settle, we will be there for you.

High Profile Cases

Industrial Relations & Discrimination

We aren’t afraid to challenge the big companies and have had a number of significant wins, including Walgama v Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited (2008), Vicki Radman v Flight Centre Ltd (2007), and Bain v Terrock Pty Ltd (2007). We’ve had a number of important battles over unfair dismissals revolving around operational reasons, including Cruickshank v Priceline Pty Ltd (2007), Carter v Village Cinemas Australia Pty Ltd (2007), Collin McKenzie v Fuji Xerox (2008), and Perry v Savills (Vic) Pty Limited (2006).

An extremely significant recent decision was Napoli v Dabserv Pty Ltd. In this case, A Whole New Approach was successful in winning an extension of time hearing against Dabserv Pty Ltd, the administrative arm of the large law firm Mallesons Stephen Jaques. The applicant was unable to lodge her unfair dismissal claim until 49 days after the 21-day time limit for a number of reasons, including her psychological state.
