New limits for Tribunal compensation awards came into force on 1 February 2010. For the first time ever, the Employment Rights (Revision of Limits) Order 2009 brought in a reduced maximum award for unfair dismissal of £65,300. This is a drop from £66,200 for the previous year and is linked to a fall in the inflation rate. The Statutory Maternity, Paternity, Adoption and Sick Pay rates that will come into force on 1 April 2010 have also been announced. Maternity Pay, Paternity Pay and Adoption Pay will increase from £123.06 to £124.88 per week but there will be no change to Statutory Sick Pay which will stay at £79.15 per week.
