Introduction of Penalty Notices for Unpaid Awards on Settlements

A response in Hansard suggests that the Government intends to bring the new “unpaid award penalties” into force as of April 2016.  The comment in Hansard states that the Government will issue a “warning notice” where an award or settlement remains unpaid.  If the warning is not adhered to they will receive a “penalty notice” for 50% of the outstanding amount subject to a minimum of £100 and a maximum of £5,000.  The fines will be paid to the Secretary of State and not to the employee.
