ABSTRACT
This section offers news briefs related to labor laws in Great Britain. The maximum tribunal award for unfair dismissal will increase from £63,000 to £66,200 in 2009. Recruiters placing job adverts with ageist language may not be discriminating if they can show they consider every application, a tribunal ruled. Tom Potbury, employment lawyer at Pinsent Masons, warns that staff must avoid drunken brawling or committing other misdemeanours at the office Christmas party, as disciplinary records can be a criterion in redundancy selection.
