New Tribunal Compensation Limits Enforcement Febru

With effect from 1st February 2012 certain limits on Tribunal awards will increase, as well as other amounts payable under Employment Legislation.  The most significant are as follows:-

(i)              the limit on a week’s pay for the purposes of calculating redundancy payments etc will increase from £400 to £430;

(ii)             the maximum compensatory award for unfair dismissal will increase from £68,400 to £72,300 and

(iii)            guarantee pay increases from £22 per day to £23.50 per day.

The new rates apply to cases where the event giving rise to compensation or payment arises on or after 1st February 2012.  For example if an employee is dismissed on 31st January 2012, and subsequently claims unfair dismissal, the old rates prior to 1st February 2012 will apply.  However if the employee is dismissed on or after 1st February 2012 then the new rates shall apply.

"I would highly recommend Maples Solicitors, especially Gemma Mayer, for any conveyancing work. The level of support and professionalism was excellent at all times. I also felt if I needed to ask or clarify anything that it was not an issue. Buying and selling a house is stressful enough, but Gemma helped me through it step by step."

Jamie Dobbs GCILEx

Over the last forty years I have cause to deal with many law firms both in a personal and professional capacity, including some ‘top’ London Companies. In all of those dealings I have never found anyone as proactive and so willing to offer help and advice as Jamie Dobbs. During the last two years Jamie guided my parents through the completion of Lasting Powers of Attorney. Helped myself with the use of the LPA and recently dealing with Probate and Estate Administration following their death.
