Hello again, to answer your questions:
Ok what do you mean when you mentioned an uplift ?
Ok - what if I cant get another job - is there a limit to what i can claim ?
What about compensation - I took this job on as a career job and thought id be here until i retired - I am 50 this month and may find it really difficult to get another job .
The uplift is if the employer has failed to follow the ACAS Code but that will only happen if they have not dealt with a grievance or disciplinary procedure properly. The compensation for unfair dismissal is limited to £74,200This will be taken into account by the tribunal, they will assess your prospects of getting another job, depending on your age, experience, qualifications, the job market, etc
Please let me know if this has answered your original question or if you need me to clarify anything else for you in relation to this?
