About the Wrongful Dismissal Database

The unjust dismissal cases cited in Wrongful Dismissal Database have been selected by Barry Fisher, LL.B. (see About the Author below). The selection criteria are based on the relevance and precedent value of each case. It is not intended to be a complete archive of unjust dismissal cases. New cases are regularly reviewed and selected for addition to the database by the authors.

A unique feature of Wrongful Dismissal Database Online is the inclusion of any special circumstances which may have had an impact on the notice period awarded. This includes any so-called Wallace, or punitive damages for mental distress awarded in the case. You can view these by selecting the Special Circumstances option.
