The Employment Rights (Increase of Limits) Order 2014 will increase limits to certain tribunal awards and other statutory payments from 6 April 2014. The figures reflect an RPI increase of 3.2{ba3215b0bf35eaeb06be458b3396ffbfc50bb9db10c9ff1594dfc3875e90ea48} in the year to September 2013.

The most notable changes for you to be aware of are:-

Please be aware that for cases involving dismissals, these new figures will only apply where the effective date of termination falls on or after 6 April 2014. It is not in relation to when compensation is awarded. For instance, an employee who is dismissed before 6 April 2014, will be awarded compensation based on the old figures, even if the hearing takes place in October 2014.
