New Legislation

2017 Employment Tribunal Compensation Limits

New compensation limits to take effect from 6 April 2017

The compensation limits for certain awards made in the Employment Tribunals will increase from 6 April 2017. The increases apply to dismissals occurring on or after the 6 April 2017:

  • The maximum compensation aware for unfair dismissal claims increases from £78,926 to £80,541.
  • The cap for a week’s pay (used to calculate basic awards and statutory redundancy payments) increases from £479 to £489.
  • The minimum award for certain unfair dismissal claims increases from £5,853 to £5,970.

If you are considering or are making redundancies (or maybe parting company with an employee by agreement) on or after 6 April 2017 you will need to make sure that you are using the correct cap for the weekly pay figure in your calculations.
