If the tribunal finds that the employee was unfairly dismissed, in can order compensation, reinstatement or re-engagement.
A compensation award will compromise a basic award and a compensatory award. The basic award is calculated in the same way as a statutory redundancy payment. The compensatory award is to compensate the employee for past and future financial losses arising as a result of the dismissal. An employee is under a duty to mitigate their losses. The maximum compensatory award from 6 April 2022 is £93,878 or 52-weeks gross pay, whichever is the lower.
