  Should you be entitled to damages when no loss has been suffered? Sometimes an employee has clients who give their work to an employer only because a particular employee works there, and the employer will lose those clients' custom once the employee leaves. Sometimes that employee has post-termination restrictions that prevent them from still dealing with those loyal clients after leaving, but they continue to deal with them anyway. Strictly speaking, the employer has suffered no loss (because the clients would have gone...

For those of you who like to know such things, these are the new rates for the main statutory payments and for the new capped amounts for compensation from 6th April 2015 onwards. The exception - one wonders why, but let's thank the Government anyway for this extra layer of complexity - is that the SMP, SAP and ShPP rates apply from 5th April 2015 (i.e. one day earlier).

Many of us predicted that the introduction of fees in July 2013 for claims in Employment Tribunals would reduce the number of claims being brought. However, none of us anticipated a staggering 79% drop in the number of applications lodged in the last quarter of 2013 (compared with the same period in 2012). Is it good news for employers? Generally it is because troublesome claimants with weak claims who were clogging up the system and wasting management time and cost seem,...

There is a new limit on the maximum compensatory award for unfair dismissals.   For terminations which fall after Monday, 29th July 2013, the limit of the compensatory award in most types of unfair dismissal claims is now 52 weeks' pay or £74,200 (as at 1st 1 February 2013), whichever is the lower.  The limit remains at £74,200 for terminations on or before 28th July 2013....
