Ending the employment relationship

Open date: 14 Sep 2012
Closing date: 23 Nov 2012
The GOVERNMENT sseks to consult on on ways to support the use of settlement agreements and changes to the compensatory award limit in unfair dismissal cases.
The consultation covers two areas:
  • Ways to encourage the use of settlement agreements as a means of coming to a consensual agreement, allowing both parties to avoid the costs and stresses of a tribunal case;
  • Changing the limit of the compensatory award in unfair dismissal cases to give employers more certainty about their potential liability and give employees more understanding of the value of unfair dismissal claims.
