Have you and your colleagues been made redundant without being consulted with? You may be entitled to a Protective Award.
A Protective Award is an award of compensation for employees who have not been collectively informed and consulted with prior to their redundancy.
Designed to penalise an employer for failing to perform their obligation to consult with their staff, Protective Awards are at the discretion of the Employment Tribunal and can be worth up to 90 days’ gross pay.
Fill in the form below to see how much you could claim if you’re eligible for a Protective Award.
You may be eligible if you have been dismissed, or are about to be dismissed as redundant, and your employer has failed to adequately inform and consult with appropriate representatives. You have up to 90 days from the date of the last dismissal to file a claim. You do not need to have been employed for two years in order to bring a claim. If you were represented by a trade union then they must bring the claim on your behalf.
A claim must either be made within three months of the date which the last dismissal takes place.
Before making a claim, you must first go through the ACAS early conciliation process and obtain an Early Conciliation Certificate. This confirms that you have engaged in the Early Conciliation process through ACAS. Therefore, it is important to take action as soon as possible.
Your employer must do the following things when making 20 or more redundancies in the business:
