The Employment Rights (Increase in Limits) 2012

Book your free initial call

    We endeavour to make an initial response to all enquiries within 24 hours but please be aware that on some occasions due to prior commitments or volume of calls we will not be able to respond in that time frame. We also operate a 48 hour return policy. This return policy means that if we have not responded with 48 hours of your initial enquiry we are unable to do so due to current workloads and we will destroy your data accordingly. This policy ensures you are not left waiting and have the certainty that your data is not compromised. In most instances however we are able to make contact within a 24 hour time frame. Please note our free initial advice service is available to clients at our total discretion and if your case is of a complex nature we may not be able to offer you a free consultation. However in these instances we will advise you what the charge would be for an initial fixed fee consultation.

The Annual review of compensation limits has been announced this week. As always, the limits have been adjusted to align with the Retail Price Index and the most notable changes are as follows.

  1. An increase in the maximum Compensatory Award for unfair dismissal from £72,300 to £74,200
  2. An increase in the maximum amount of a week’s pay from £430 to £450. This maximum is used to calculate statutory redundancy payments as well as the basic and additional awards for unfair dismissal.

These new limits come into force on the 1st February 2013.
