Employment Rights Act - increase in maximum amount of a week’s pay from 1 October 2009
With effect from 1 October 2009, the maximum amount of a week’s pay for the purposes of calculating payments under the insolvency (and other) provisions of the Employment Rights Act 1996 is increased from £350 to £380.
The new rate also applies to the calculation of entitlement to redundancy payments.
The regular annual increase in February has been suspended for 2010, so the next increase in a week’s pay is now due in February 2011.
