How to prepare your schedule of loss for the Employment Tribunal

This guide helps you to prepare your Schedule of Loss (also called the Statement of Remedy). You don’t get what you don’t ask for in your schedule of loss and you can mess up your entire claim if you get it wrong. It is very important for your Employment Tribunal claim since it tells the Judge how much you think you should be paid if you are successful.



The Employment Tribunal will usually order you to prepare your schedule of loss quite early in the proceedings, so that it can be used in settlement negotiations, or judicial mediation. It is a good idea to start preparing it immediately after you submit your claim because of the amount of work that goes into preparing it, and also because you want to refer to it in your witness statement.

This guide shows you how to calculate your schedule of loss and justify your calculations to the Employment Tribunal. There is an Excel Spreadsheet which has been developed specifically for an unfair dismissal claim. Use it with the guide to calculate your Basic and Compensatory Award with precision. Your heads of loss are easy to calculate with formulas for adjustments such as the ACAS uplift and grossing up options built in.
