Can I Make A Protective Award Claim?

If you worked for Debenhams you may be able to claim up to 90 days’ pay by making a Protective Award claim. Find out if you qualify with our free eligibility checker.

A Protective Award is compensation awarded by an employment tribunal because your employer did not consult with you before you were made redundant.

If you were one of the Debenhams staff who were made redundant after 1 December 2020, without proper consultation, you could be eligible to claim up to 90 days’ pay. This is usually up to 8 weeks’ pay with a maximum amount of £538 per week, totaling a maximum award of £4,304.

We operate on a No Win, No Fee Basis, so find out today if we can help you.

Your "location" must have had 20 or more people for you to be able to make a claim.


If you were a member of a Trade Union prior to your redundancy you should contact them in the first instance.
