Employment tribunal changes

Feb 04, 2010

The maximum amounts that employment tribunal can award have undergone their annual review. The changes, which took effect from 1 February, are as follows: Unfair dismissal award: the new maximum is £65,300 and Statutory redundancy payment: the maximum award is unchanged at £11,400. The unfair dismissal award has fallen from £66, 200 due to the fact that the retail price index (RPI) dipped slightly last year. The statutory redundancy pay is unchanged because it was raised independently by the Government last October. http://www.bwwrecruitment.com/QuickJobs.aspx  There will be further changes to tribunal amounts used in award calculations from 1 April. These are expected to be as follows: Statutory maternity, paternity and adoption pay: £124.08, Statutory sick pay: £79.15 and Weekly earnings threshold: £97.
