Anita North
National Head of Employment

As of Wednesday 26th of January 2022 at 5pm, we cannot take on any more ex Kesslers International employees to help with their protective award claims.

You may want to pursue this without our legal assistance. If so, please contact ACAS on 0300 123 1100 or visit for advice.

Please kindly note that Simpson Millar LLP cannot be held responsible in the event that you seek to bring a claim after the limitation period has expired and you should seek independent legal advice if in doubt about when your limitation period is.

5 steps to making a Protective Award Claim

We can make your Protective Awards Claim in just five simple steps:

Step 1: You can use our free eligibility checker to make sure you’re eligible to make a Protective Award claim.

Step 2: If you are eligible, we’ll then get permission from the administrators (Kroll Advisory’s Philip Dakin and Michael Lennon) to make your Protective Award claim.

Step 3: Next, we’ll complete an Early Conciliation with ACAS. This is a standard exercise that needs to be done before we can go to an Employment Tribunal.

Step 4: We’ll file your claim with the Employment Tribunal. They will then consider all the evidence and make their judgment.

Step 5: If the Employment Tribunal passes judgement in your favour, we can claim your Protective Award compensation from Kesslers International, or the Insolvency Service if that’s not possible.

But, our team of Employment Law Solicitors will take care of the entire Protective Awards Claim for you, so you don’t need to worry about missing deadlines or filling in paperwork.

When do I need to make my Protective Award Claim by?

You have 3 months less one day to make a Protective Award Claim.

If you’re eligible, we’ll help you through the process as quickly as possible to make sure you don’t miss this deadline. 

Tip: You could make a group claim with your fellow Kesslers International colleagues to make things even quicker

How much compensation am I likely to get from a Protective Award Claim?

If the Protective Award is paid by Kesslers International, the amount of compensation you’re likely to get will usually depend on your gross weekly wage, but you could get up to 90 days’ pay.

If your compensation is paid by the Insolvency Service, there’s a cap of £544 a week for up to 8 weeks. This means that the maximum amount you could claim would be £4,352.

You should still get paid for all your outstanding holidays and also any redundancy pay as these are separate from a Protective Award Claim.

There is no minimum length of service needed to make a claim, and both full time and part-time staff can also submit Protective Award Claims.
