Hot off the Press: Challenge – The Statutory Cap

  • Posted on

At our recent employment lawreview we referred to the judicial review challenging theintroduction of the statutory cap on compensation awards for unfairdismissal.

The case was advanced by aLondon firm aptly named Compromise Agreements. The mainthrust of the argument was that the cap on compensation woulddisproportionately affect older people, as they are more likely toreceive more than one year's salary in compensation due to thedifficulties of finding another job.

The High Court has dismissedthe application and the limit of £76,574 (effective as of 6 April2014) remains.
