High Court Scuppers attack on 1 yr salary compensation cap but there may be round 2

At a permission hearing The High Court has pulled the rug from under an ingenious bid to judicially review the cap which means that the maximum compensatory award a tribunal can make is a year's gross salary (which, today itself, is capped at £76,574).

Alex Monaco said the cap on compensation will disproportionately affect older people, as they are most likely to receive more than a year’s salary in compensation due to difficulty in finding another job.

 Monaco said in the Gazette: ‘We are looking at options and looking at appealing it.’ He said the firm is seeking pro bono help from lawyers to fight the ruling.
