Over recent years the jurisdiction of the Employment Tribunal has increased dramatically - the vast majority of employment claims are now brought here. And as the value of claims has increased, so too has the complexity of compensation awards and agreements - legal advisers now routinely need to advise on tax and pensions issues. Developments in employment law - notably in discrimination law - have also increased the range of actions brought.

Employment Tribunal Compensation provides a comprehensive, practical and accessible guide to the financial awards available for every type of claim brought to the Tribunal, including wrongful dismissal, unfair dismissal, redundancy, discrimination, equal pay and claims for unpaid wages.

Based on Anthony Korn's well regarded text Compensation for Dismissal, this new edition has been designed with the Tribunal practitioner in mind and has been substantially revised to include a detailed new section on discrimination compensation as well as a fully updated section on compensation for unfair dismissal (including a chapter on compensation for loss of pension rights written by Raymond Jeffers, Head of the London Employment Group at Linklaters).

  • Comprehensive: provides extensive coverage of compensation for every type of claim to the Employment Tribunal
  • Practical: includes specific guidance on award calculation (including worked examples) and key practical issues including case preparation and evidence, Tribunal procedure, settlement, and tax liabilities
  • Analytical: examines the principles underlying Employment Tribunal awards and their continuing development
  • Extensively revised and updated: includes recent case law on the calculation of future loss, the relevance of the Ogden tables and the reduction of damages for contributory fault in unfair dismissal claims, and details changes brought about since implementation of the dispute resolution procedures under the Employment Act 2002
  • New chapter on awards in discrimination cases - which can extend to compensation for injury to feelings and injury to health
  • Fully revised chapter on compensation for loss of pension rights written by Raymond Jeffers - Head of the London Employment Group at Linklaters
  • Compact and accessible: enables the busy practitioner to access the information required easily
  • Up to date: accompanied by a regularly updated companion website, to include significant case law and statutory developments and relevant rate changes
