Employment tribunal award limits increase

Implementation date: 6 April 2021

The Employment Rights (Increase of Limits) Order 2021 (SI 2021/208) increases the limits applying to various 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 and the basic and additional award of compensation for unfair dismissal (which increases to £544). The limit on the amount of a guarantee payment is frozen at £30 per day. The Order applies where the event that gives rise to the entitlement to the payment occurs on or after 6 April 2021.
