New tribunal award limits come into force

Implementation date: 1 February 2013

The Employment Rights (Increase of Limits) Order 2012 (SI 2012/3007) increases the limits applying to certain employment tribunal awards and other amounts payable under employment legislation, including the maximum amount of a week’s pay for the purpose of calculating a redundancy payment or the basic award of compensation for unfair dismissal. The order applies where the event that gives rise to the entitlement to the payment occurs on or after 1 February 2013. The order can be viewed on the UK legislation website.
