The Court of Appeal has given some useful guidance on how to calculate long term loss in Wardle v Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank. When reviewing the tribunal’s and EAT’s decisions on remedy, the Court of Appeal held that the tribunal had been wrong to assess Mr Wardle’s loss by reference to his whole career. It would rarely be appropriate to assess compensation over a career lifetime. The tribunal had found that Mr Wardle had a 70% chance of returning to his banking career by the end of 2011, given the upturn in the market. Therefore, it should have awarded compensation for future loss up to that date only.
