As of Friday 24th of September 2021 at 5pm, we cannot take on any more ex JTF Warehouse employees to help with their protective award claims.

This is because of the strict time limits in place for Protective Award claims.

You may want to pursue this without our legal assistance. If so, please contact ACAS on 0300 123 1100 or visit www.acas.org.uk 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.

What is a Protective Award Claim?

A Protective Award Claim is compensation that’s awarded to employees when their employer fails to consult with them properly about their redundancy.

To be eligible for a Protective Award Claim, you must meet a set criteria:

  • Your employer made more than 20 members of staff redundant from the same location
  • They didn’t follow the correct legal redundancy process when they told you

If the above applies to you, get in touch with our Employment Solicitors to see if you can make a claim.

How much can I Claim through a Protective Award?

You could claim up to 90 days’ pay through a Protective Award Claim but the exact amount you’ll get will be based on your gross weekly pay.

You’re guaranteed to get at least 8 weeks’ pay by HM Insolvency Service but there’s a cap of £544 a week, meaning that the total amount you can claim is £4,352.

Both full time and part time employees can make a Protective Award Claim and doing so won’t affect any outstanding wages, redundancy pay or holiday pay you’re expecting.

Is there a Time Limit for Making a Claim?

There’s a strict time limit of 3 months, less one day, from the date you were made redundant to make a Protective Award Claim.

We recommend getting in touch with our Employment Solicitors as soon as possible for expert legal advice.
