protective award

protective award
Under the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consultation) Act 1992, if an employer does not comply with the redundancy consultation requirements with a recognised independent trade union and cannot demonstrate that consultation was not reasonably practicable, the industrial tribunal can be asked to make a protective award of between thirty and ninety days' pay depending on the number of employees involved. In the case of a business transfer, the maximum award is four week's pay.
