 Update number 475 • 27 March 2020

The level of compensation for injury to feelings in Equality Act claims has been increased.

The Presidents of the Employment Tribunals (England, Wales & Scotland) have updated the Vento compensation bands for injury to feelings.

The new rates apply to claims presented on or after 6 April 2020 and will be:

Lower band

£900 - £9,000

Where the discrimination has been less serious than the middle band, or an isolated occurrence. Many cases fall into this category.

Middle band

£9,000 – £27,000

Where there has been repeated or continuing discrimination of a more serious kind.

Upper band

£27,000 - £45,000

Cases where there has been extremely serious discrimination, usually consisting of prolonged and consistent harassment. Very few cases fall into this band.

Compensation in excess of £45,000 may be awarded in very exceptional cases.  

We will be updating the Employment Law Briefing on Compensation & Remedies shortly.
