At the beginning of the year we advised you of important dates for your diary in relation to employment law. We have now updated our earlier infographic to include the increases in tribunal awards and a week’s pay, which have been made pursuant to The Employment Rights (Increase of Limits) Order 2018. The Order was laid before Parliament on 20 February 2018 and will come into effect on 6 April 2018. Click here to see the updated infographic.
The additional information is:
- For redundancy and unfair dismissal calculations a maximum weeks’ pay is £508 (currently £489).
- The maximum compensatory award for unfair dismissal will increase from £80,541 to £83,682.
