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.
