I have been laid-off, can I sue my employer for wrongful dismissal?

In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, businesses have been forced to consider lay-offs as a way to save money as demand for goods and services decreases. Lay-offs are a complex area of the law which is further complicated by the misconception that employers have an automatic right to lay people off.

My employment was terminated without cause. Now what?

Work is one of the most fundamental aspects in a person's life,
providing the individual with a means of financial support and,
as importantly, a contributory role in society. A person's employment is
an essential component of his or her sense of identity, self-worth and
emotional well-being. Accordingly, the conditions in which a person
works are highly significant in shaping the whole compendium of
psychological, emotional and physical elements of a person's dignity
and self-respect.
