Tribunal awards and statutory redundancy pay – annual increases

Where the event that gives rise to an award of compensation, e.g. an unfair dismissal or a redundancy, happens on or after 6 April 2016, new increased compensation or payment amounts will apply.
The limit on a week’s pay which is used to calculate statutory redundancy payments will increase from £475 to £479.
The maximum compensatory award for unfair dismissal will increase from £78,335 to £78,962. This remains subject to the cap on the compensatory award of 52 weeks’ pay.
