Employment Law Service

Due to local demand - The Launceston Community Legal Centre will continue to provide assistance, advice or representation within employment law areas.

We are once more providing legal assistance on employment matters.

However, a Victorian community legal centre is now also providing employment matter telephone assistance for Tasmania.

Unfair Dismissal: An unfair dismissal application must be lodged with the Fair Work Commission within 21 days of the dismissal coming into effect.

The time limits are only extended in exceptional circumstances.
