SI laid before Parliament re One Year Cap on Compensatory Award

  • Posted

The draft The Unfair Dismissal (Variation of the Limit of Compensatory Award) Order 2013 has been laid before parliament. It limits the compensatory award in an unfair dismissal case to the lower of £74,200 or 52 weeks' pay.

The exact commencement date is not known, but it is expected to come into force sometime in July (and will apply to all dismissals occurring after that date).

It'll be no great surprise to hear I'll be talking about this in my MasterClasses next month (have a look at some testimonials from earlier MasterClasses if you haven't already done so).
