EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the limit on the compensatory award for unfair dismissal claims by introducing an additional, alternative limit. In an unfair dismissal claim the limit on the compensatory award shall be the lower of a set amount (which is currently £74,200) and the product of 52 multiplied by a week’s pay of the employee concerned.

The transitional provision contained in this Order means that the additional, alternative limit for the compensatory award (of 52 weeks pay) will not apply in cases where the effective date of termination is on or before the date the Order is made.

A full regulatory impact assessment is available and a copy can be obtained from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, Labour Market Directorate, 1 Victoria Street, London, SW1H 0ET. Copies have also been placed in the libraries of both Houses of Parliament.
