Employment Compensation For Unfair Dismissal
Offices in Leeds, Harrogate and London. Working with clients across the UK and overseas.
One of the main issues for Claimants and Employers in any dispute is compensation.
Unless a dismissal takes place on the ground of gross misconduct, notice pay is generally always payable on the termination of employment together with any other outstanding contractual amounts for example holiday pay.
A claim of unfair dismissal enables an employee to claim different types of compensation. These are:
Basic award – this is calculated in the same way as a statutory redundancy payment and is based on age, length of service, a gross weeks pay (subject to the current cap). Click here for more details.
Compensatory award – which is potentially 12 months pay or capped at £76,574 for higher earners (whichever is less).
Loss of statutory rights – normally around £300-£600.
Discrimination claims are unlimited when it comes to compensation and also carry an injury to feelings award. Realistically however the average injury to feelings award is around £5,000.00 – £10,000.00.
It is very important to get a realistic estimate of exposure or assessment of damages in discrimination cases and specialist advice at an early stage is essential.

Thank you, all. Highly recommend for employment law advice.
I’d like to take the opportunity to say a big thank you to Andy Boyde for helping me with my employment issue. For someone who was in a difficult situation his knowledge and expertise helped guide me through the process. He always provided quick responses and was readily available to provide expert advice whenever I needed it. I was impressed with the knowledge and professionalism shown and would recommend him if you are ever in a complicated employment situation.
Patient & Understanding
I spoke with Victoria Horner who gave me not only patience and understanding, but excellent legal advice that left me feeling confident. I would definitely recommend Victoria and Consilia Legal.
