Wrongful dismissal damages are meant to pay a dismissed employee the compensation that would likely have been earned had he/she remained at work during their notice period. Additional damages can be sought depending on the conduct of the employer. Damages can be claimed for personal injury, mental distress and punitive damages.
These additional damages can be classified into the following categories:
- Bad faith dismissal;
- Aggravated damages;
- Intentional infliction of mental suffering;
- Punitive damages; and
- Damages for injury to reputation.
In situations where an employer’s conduct has been so extreme or harsh employees can claim one or more of these additional grounds for damages.
