Mitigation of loss is important in an unfair dismissal claim. It means that you should minimise your losses by taking steps to find another job. The Employment Tribunal would not expect you to take the first job that comes along, particularly if it is a lower paid job but your Compensatory Award may be reduced if you don’t provide evidence that you have actively tried to find another job.
