Increases to UK Statutory Redundancy Pay

There has been an increase from 6th April 2016 in the weekly rate of Statutory Redundancy Pay by £4 from £475 in 2015-16 to £479 in 2016-17. This increase is due to The Employment Rights (Increase of Limits) Order 2016. The maximum compensatory award has also been increased from £78,335 to £78,962.

These increases are only in England, Scotland and Wales. Northern Ireland is governed by different legislation and any revisions on limits by The Employment Rights (Increase of Limits) Order (Northern Ireland) 2016 came into effect on 14th February 2016.

The rates for England, Scotland and Wales displayed on GOV.UK are currently the old rates and this information should be updated soon.
