Tribunal Compensation Cap: High Court dismisses judicial review application

  • Posted

Under this statutory instrument, the maximum compensatory award a tribunal can make is a year's salary (which, itself, is capped at £76,574).

Last year, Alex Monaco of Compromise Agreements launched a judicial review application over the cap, arguing it disproportionately affects older people (as they are most likely to receive more than a year’s salary in compensation due to difficulty in finding another job).

On Tuesday (13 May), the High Court dismissed the judicial review application at a permission hearing. According to this report, the applicant is considering an appeal.
