Use the Employment Claims Toolkit to take the stress out of assessing the value of an employment claim.
The Toolkit has now been updated with the new 2017 rates, so any EDT from 6 April 2017 will automatically pick up the new figures.
Weekly limit = £489 (up from £479)
Compensation cap = £80,541 (up from £78,962)
*Interest on compensation in discriminatory cases*
A Tribunal is able to award interest on awards of compensation made in the following discrimination claims:
Past financial loss; Injury to feelings; Aggravated and exemplary damages; Physical and psychiatric injury
The Toolkit's adjustment screen is used for this purpose. However, we noticed that interest was also being applied to future loss of earnings (as opposed to just past loss) so this has now been corrected.
Please therefore check any schedules that have been created prior to 4 April 2017 as the interest element on the schedule may be different.
Why use the Toolkit?
In just a few minutes you can calculate what's at stake in any employment claim. You can then refine, adjust and update the figures as new information emerges or if the dispute progresses from a grievance to negotiation or even a full hearing. It is the ideal tool for making an early assessment of what is at stake in any employment grievance, negotiation or litigation.
Now used in private practice, FTSE100 in-house legal teams and unions - for both claimant and respondent - the Employment Claims Toolkit is rapidly becoming the standard for calculating remedy in all employment disputes.
Use the Toolkit throughout the life of any employment dispute to
- get a quick assessment of what is at stake
- agree an accurate statement of remedy for early conciliation and negotiation
- produce a polished statement of remedy for the hearing
- adjust to reflect any agreed settlement or a final award - complete with grossing up and recoupment
- help manage risk for your firm and your insurers
