Making an application - General protections dismissal


    Alert IconIf you want to make a general protections dismissal application to the Commission, you must do so within 21 days of the date you were dismissed.

    You may be able to make a number of different claims against your employer. Before you make any claims, you should get legal advice to help you work out what is the right option for you.

    How to make an application

    To make a general protections application you need to:

    • get a copy of the form
    • fill in the form
    • pay an application fee (or apply to waive (cancel) the fee if you cannot afford it)
    • file the form with the Commission.

    For more information, see Making a general protections application - Step by step guide.

    What next? The employer's response to your application

    Once the Commission gets your application, they will serve it on (give it to) your employer.

    Your employer has seven days from when it receives the application to fill in a response form and file it with the Commission. Your employer must also serve you with a copy of their response.

    For more information, see What next? The employer's response to your application.

    After you file a general protections dismissal application at the Commission, the Commission will arrange a conference with you and your employer to try and settle the dispute. You will be sent a notice of listing with the date, time and location of the conference. For more information, see Conciliation.
