Increase in Limits Order

On Monday, the increase in limits Order 2009 was laid before parliament. The Order sets the annual increase (or this year for the first time ever, decrease) of the cap on unfair dismissal Compensatory Awards. The new cap is £65,300 (down from the current £66,200). Further details are available here. Guarantee pay is also down from £21.50 to £21.20 – a saving of £1.50 on a lay off of 5 days or more!
