Employment Tribunal Remedies is a new edition of the established work, which was previously published as Employment Tribunal Compensation.

It provides a comprehensive, practical, and accessible guide to the remedies, including 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.

It includes specific guidance on award calculation and key practical issues including case preparation and evidence, tribunal procedure, settlement, and tax liabilities. It also provides an examination of the principles underlying employment tribunal awards and their continuing development.

The new edition of this work has been substantially revised to include increased coverage of discrimination and equal pay, including changes as a result of the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006 and the Equality Act 2010, and changes to compensatory awards as a result of the abolition of the statutory dispute resolution procedures and the new ACAS Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance.

It also takes into account the impact of the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006, and the Companies Act 2006, as well as coverage of all recent relevant case law.

The new edition increases the use of practical features, including worked examples and calculations, to enable practitioners to quickly identify key issues and points to prove.
