Tribunals able to award greater sums from April 2022

New regulations have been introduced which permits employment tribunals to award greater sums from April 2022.

The new regulations increase the limit of awards that the tribunal may grant at the end of proceedings by 4.9%, which is in line with the increase of the retail prices index between September 2020 to September 2021.

The regulations also increase the limit on a week’s pay (up to £571), the maximum compensatory award for unfair dismissal (up to £93,878) and the minimum basic award for certain unfair dismissals (up to £6,959).
