The basic award is a statutory award that involves multiplying the relevant factors of the length of continuous service (up to a maximum of 20 years), your age and a week’s pay (as at the effective date of termination).
After addressing the basic award, the often, more larger compensatory award will then be considered.
The Employment Rights Act provides that this will be “such amount as the Tribunal considers just and equitable in all the circumstances having regard to the loss sustained by the complainant in consequence of the dismissal insofar as that loss is attributable to action taken by the employer“.
• Encourage the exchange of early and full information about a prospective claim.
• Enable parties to avoid litigation by agreeing a settlement before proceedings are commenced.
• Support the efficient management of proceedings where litigation cannot be avoided.
Specific pre-action protocols are in force for disputes concerning particular categories of case (for example, defamation or personal injury). If a case is not covered by a specific pre-action protocol, the parties should aim to comply with the Practice Direction on Pre-action Conduct and Protocols (“Pre-action PD”); the essence of which is to encourage parties to exchange information and make appropriate attempts to resolve the claim without issuing proceedings. If a party fails to comply with relevant specific pre-action protocols, or with the Pre-action PD, the Court may impose sanctions and may take the non-compliance into account when making case management directions and/or when making orders as to costs and interest rates on sums due.
However, the court may make a different order to take account of the conduct of the parties, and whether the successful party has succeeded on all the issues in dispute. There are ways in which a party can protect their position against the risk of paying the costs of the successful party, for example, by making a formal offer to settle the proceedings.
The compensation bands of awards for injury to feelings, known as the Vento bands have been updated.
In respect of claims presented on or after 6 April 2018, the Vento bands shall be as follows:
- A lower band of £900 to £8,600 (less serious cases);
- A middle band of £8,600 to £25,700 (cases that do not merit an award in the upper band); and
- An upper band of £25,700 to £42,900 (the most serious cases), with the most exceptional cases capable of exceeding £42,900. This guidance is not binding but tribunals must have regard to it when determining compensation sums.
I was confused, stressed and frustrated with my immigration matters, however, I felt relaxed and assured after my first meeting with Frantz. The service they provided was meticulous and his expert guidance and advice led to a successful end to my immigration struggle.Daniel Adjei
Frantz helped us with an immigration issue, giving great advice and making sure our business is fully compliant with current immigration laws. He put our mind at ease and was a pleasure to deal with. Thanks for your help.Alex KeoghFlorida
We used this company to manage our family’s protracted immigration case. Frantz was our assigned lawyer and we felt he was outstanding. He kept us well informed throughout the process explaining any issues arising clearly. We recommended him to friends and they too were very impressed.Genti Mustafa
