Cairns Community Legal Centre helps Robert fight his unfair dismissal

After experiencing a non-work related injury, Robert* was unable to continue work and was dismissed from his position.

As a result Robert lodged a claim with the Australian Human Rights Commission and started negotiating with his employer. 

Cairns Community Legal Centre helped Robert understand his claim's potential value and finalised negotiations with his employer so Robert was paid fair compensation and received a formal written apology after his unfair dismissal.
