A table summarising the award limits and amounts payable under employment legislation in Northern Ireland.
The maximum amount of statutory redundancy pay and the limit on the amount employment tribunals can award for unfair dismissal increase from 6 April 2017.
The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has upheld an employment tribunal decision to award £14,000 for injury to feelings after a young lawyer was subjected to sexual harassment in the workplace and forced out of her job. Zoe Lomax, employment associate at DLA Piper, examines the decision including the level of compensation dictated by the Vento bands.
In Phoenix House Ltd v Stockman and another  IRLR 848 EAT, the EAT held that, while the "Acas code of practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures" did have some application to elements of a "some other substantial reason" dismissal, it was not appropriate to apply the uplift in compensation for unfair dismissal in such a case.
In Holmes v Qinetiq Ltd  IRLR 664 EAT, the EAT held the "Acas code of practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures" has no application where an employer does not allege culpable conduct by an employee. Accordingly, no uplift to compensation under s.207A of TULR(C)A could be applied where the employee was unfairly dismissed on ill-health grounds.
