After the case - General protections dismissal

If you made a general protections application about your dismissal, the case will end when one of the following has happened:

  • you reach an agreement with your employer
  • you discontinue (end) the case
  • the Fair Work Commission makes a decision after arbitration 
  • the Federal Circuit Court makes a decision after a hearing.

Alert Icon  This section will help you if you have come to an agreement to settle your case or the Fair Work Commission or Federal Circuit Court has made a decision in your case. If you have been to a mediation or conciliation conference at the Fair Work Commission (the Commission) and the Commission issued a certificate, the next step is to either:

  • apply for the Commission to arbitrate your case (if you and your employer agree)
  • make an application to the Federal Circuit Court. For information on this, see Going to the Federal Circuit Court.

After the case has ended, you should consider the following:

    Enforcing agreements

    If you settled the case with your employer, they may have agreed to reinstate you or pay you compensation. If your employer does not do what they agreed, it is possible to enforce the agreement. For more information, see Enforcing agreements.

    Enforcing orders

    If your employer doesn't follow an order made by the Fair Work Commission or Federal Circuit Court, it is possible to enforce the order. For more information, see Enforcing orders.
