I have what I believe to be an extremely strong case for Unfair Dismissal and am likely to file very soon. However the maximum restitution available to me under the Fair Work Australia system doesn't come close to adequately compensating me for the effect on my future earnings and career prospects that have arisen from the termination itself and its effect on my excellent professional reputation within my tight-knit industry. Further to that my ex-employer's actions in the immediate aftermath of the dismissal have had a severely detrimental effect on my chances of gaining work within my field - and seemingly destroyed any chance of earning a role equivalent to the one I have lost. This is not to mention the devastating effect it has had on my family and our plans for the immediate future. Basically my question is: if I choose to file and win - either in mediation or court - does this action negate the possibility of taking secondary action to try to gain adequate compensation for the ongoing impact my former employer's actions have had on my career and life in general? I am not saying I will definitely file a damages claim but would like to know all my options before proceeding with any action . Any advice you can provide is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
