Injury to feelings compensation in discrimination claims

An uplift to the injury to feelings awards limits (the Vento bands) has been released by the Presidents of the Employment Tribunals in England & Wales and Scotland.

In respect of claims presented on or after 6 April 2021, the Vento bands have been increased to:

  • lower band of £900 to £9,100 (less serious cases);
  • middle band of £9,100 to £27,400 (cases that are more serious and/or repeated but which do not merit an award in the upper band);
  • the upper band of £27,400 to £45,600 (the most serious cases).

The bands are for guidance only and exceptional cases are capable of exceeding £45,600.
