New compensation limits for ET claims from 6 April 2017

The Employment Rights (Increase of Limits) Order 2017 has been laid before Parliament bringing into force the increased compensation limits with effect from 6 April 2017.
The order increases the limits applying to certain employment tribunal claims, and amounts payable under employment legislation.  Of most interest is the maximum compensatory award for unfair dismissal increasing to £80,541 (or one year's salary if this is less) and the limit on a week's pay for statutory purposes (including redundancy pay) increasing to £489.
