Employees who are made redundant and have been employed for two years or more are entitled to a statutory redundancy payment. This is based on their age and complete years of service and their weekly gross pay. This pay is capped and from the 6 April 2021 is increased from £538 to £544. Where an employee earns less than £544, the pay is capped at their weekly amount.
The maximum compensatory award in unfair dismissal cases has increased from £88,519 to £89,493, or one years gross pay, whichever is lower.
