From 6 April 2014, the cap on the unfair dismissal compensatory award will increase from £74,200 to £76,574 and the cap on weekly pay (used to calculate the unfair dismissal basic award and statutory redundancy pay) will increase from £450 to £464.

This gives a maximum unfair dismissal award of £90,494. Note that since 29 July 2013 there has been an additional cap on the compensatory award of 12 months’ pay.

The increases are set out in the Employment Rights (Increase of Limits) Order 2014 SI 2014/382.
