The Employment Rights Act 1996 (‘ERA’) sets out many of the statutory rights which an employee has. It gives Employment Tribunals power to order employers who infringe those rights to make payments of compensation. ERA only applies in Great Britain but similar legislation applies in Northern Ireland.

For compensation for unfair and wrongful dismissal, see EIM12960.

The following payments that a tribunal may order an employer to make count as earnings under section 62 ITEPA 2003 (see EIM00515):

guarantee payments under sections 28 and 34(3) ERA

payments to an employee suspended from work on medical grounds under sections 64 and 70(3) ERA
