Group calls for tribunal award cap

The Government's professional services group has recommended that employment tribunal awards for discrimination and unfair dismissal should be capped at £50,000, reports the Independent.


There is currently no limit on the award a tribunal can make in a discrimination case, although the maximum compensatory award for unfair dismissal is capped at £68,400.


The group has also recommended to the Government that an employee who is unsuccessful in a tribunal discrimination claim should pay a contribution towards the employer's legal costs.
