Various statutory payments, compensation limits and minimum awards change in April 2018.
Notable changes include:
The new compensation limits take effect where the ‘appropriate date’ for the cause of action (such as the date of termination in an unfair dismissal claim) falls on or after 6 April 2018. Where the appropriate date falls before 6 April, the old limits will still apply, irrespective of the date on which compensation is awarded.
