Enforcement of Tribunal Awards and Settlements

BIS has published its form for claiming penalties from employers for non-payment of Tribunal awards or settlements.

Where a claimant has not been paid any sums under a settlement or Tribunal award, they can ask BIS to issue a penalty of up to 50% of the outstanding amount subject to a minimum of £100 and a maximum of £5,000.

This however will not assist many claimants as the fine could be far less than the amount payable to the claimant, and furthermore the fine will not go to the claimant but BIS.
