Employers have made payments of more than £83,000 since a new penalty regime for unpaid employment tribunal awards came into force last year. Law Gazette report that since April last year, BEIS has issued 60 penalty notices as a result of 164 warning notices to employers for failure to comply with employment tribunal orders to pay compensation to applicants. Penalties of up to £5,000 for non-payment of tribunal awards came into force under the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015. The scheme applies to judgments given on or after 6 April 2016. Claimants can also use a fast-track scheme, in which a High Court enforcement officer recovers the award on their behalf.
