Basic Award - (adjective + noun)


In the UK, you receive a financial award if you have been unfairly dismissed. This award is made up of a basic award, which is a fixed sum calculated to a statutory formula; and a compensatory award, which compensates you for the money you have lost as a result of losing your job.
