Section 41 Of The Enterprise Act Enforced

S41 of the Enterprise Act comes into force from 1st February 2017.

It allows the Secretary of State to issue regulations capping public sector exit payments (which include pay in lieu or notice, redundancy and ex gratia payments) to £95,000.

With the ‘austerity programme’ ongoing there is a good possibility that these regulations will be issued and, if so, it will be interesting to see the reaction of public sector workers and the unions that represent them.

If you are concerned how this could affect you, please contact our specialist employment lawyer Karl Thomas immediately.
