Can I make a Protective Award claim?
Were you made redundant without being consulted first? You could be entitled to a Protective Award.
By law, your employer is obliged to hold a discussion with you that they are planning to make redundant. This is to ensure they respect your basic employment rights.
If your right to a consultation prior to redundancy has been ignored, you could be eligible to claim compensation.
How much is a Protective Award?
The compensation you could get from a protective award claim can be:
- Up to 8 weeks gross pay if the government is paying
- Up to 13 weeks gross pay when an employer is paying
Your wage is capped at £544 per week, if you were made redundant after the 6th April 2021. If you were made redundant before 6th April 2021, these amounts will be lower. This amount will be paid in full, if the tribunal judgement is successful. And, it will be paid in addition to the redundancy package that will have already been agreed.
