STOP PRESS: New Tribunal Compensation Limits

Stop PressIt’s that time of year again when the compensation limits and minimum awards which are made in respect of successful tribunal claims are increased in line with inflation. The key increases to be aware of are as follows:

*the maximum compensatory award remains 52 weeks’ gross pay if this is less than £78,335.

These increases will only apply where the cause of action (for unfair dismissal claims this will be the date of termination) falls on or after 6 April 2015.

The Employment Rights (Increase of Limits) Order 2015 SI 2015/226 which sets out each of the new compensation limits can be accessed at the link below.
