What is the maximum payout for unfair dismissal?
The maximum amount that an employee may recover if their unfair dismissal application is successful is capped at the equivalent of half the current high-income threshold, which, as of July 1st 2018, $145,400. This means the maximum amount of compensation that can be awarded is $72,700. However, this is the upper limit for compensation.
For example, an employee who earns $50,000 per annum would only be entitled to compensation of up to $25,000 if their unfair dismissal application was successful.
