Wrongful Dismissal Explained
An action for wrongful dismissal ( not to be confused with unfair dismissal ) is a common law action for damages to compensate the ex employee for losses suffered for the wrongful termination of a employment contract. Generally this will only amount to monies to which the employee would have been contractually entitled had the contract been lawfully terminated, in effect, monies in lieu of notice.Get Legal Advice
