Work and Families (Increase of Maximum Amount) Order (Northern Ireland) 2009 comes into force

Implementation date: 1 October 2009

The Order increases the maximum weekly amount from £350 to £380 that can be used by Northern Ireland industrial tribunals to calculate awards such as unfair dismissal and redundancy payments and payments made by the Department for Employment and Learning out of the Northern Ireland National Insurance Fund on an employer's insolvency. The Order also suspends the uplifting of this sum in February 2010. The Order can be viewed on the OPSI website.
