One of the main issues for Claimants and Employers in any dispute is compensation.

Unless a dismissal takes place on the ground of gross misconduct, notice pay is generally always payable on the termination of employment together with any other outstanding contractual amounts for example holiday pay.

A claim of unfair dismissal enables an employee to claim different types of compensation. These are:

Basic award – this is calculated in the same way as a statutory redundancy payment and is based on age, length of service, a gross weeks pay (subject to the current cap). Click here for more details. 

Compensatory award – which is potentially 12 months pay or capped at £76,574 for higher earners (whichever is less).

Loss of statutory rights – normally around £300-£600.

Discrimination claims are unlimited when it comes to compensation and also carry an injury to feelings award. Realistically however the average injury to feelings award is around £5,000.00 – £10,000.00.

It is very important to get a realistic estimate of exposure or assessment of damages in discrimination cases and specialist advice at an early stage is essential.

I was most impressed with the speed and efficiency which Andy Boyde at Consilia Legal handled my case. I selected Consilia Legal after reviewing previous feedback which had positive comments regarding the areas I was interested in. The way my case was handled turned a stressful situation into a quick and stress free process. I would have no hesitation in recommending Consilia Legal.

Craig S

Very quick and reassuring response from Andy and the team here after a very difficult situation at work. Referred from Citizen Advice Bureau because all other firms seemed less bothered about my needs versus their fees. Andy gave great advice and helped explore my options so I could respond appropriately without being cornered by my work. Ended up with a very amicable outcome! In difficult times you need people like Consilia to help guide and support you... thanks guys

Mirra Riz

Consilia Legal, and Marie in particular, have helped me a number of times with thorough and caring legal advice. This last time she helped me negotiate my way out of a difficult work situation. As a result of her candid advice I was able to: a) Leave amicably by resigning b) Secure 3 months pay in lieu of notice c) Obtain written confirmation a standard reference would be provided. Wonderful work as always and much appreciated! I would add there was a detailed plan in place should an amicable separation not have been possible, but this was not needed in the end due to the aforementioned candour. Always best to find an amicable solution.
