In brief

The Presidents of the Employment Tribunals (England & Wales and Scotland) have issued Presidential Guidance updating the Vento bands for damages for injury to feelings in discrimination claims.

  • The lower band (for less serious cases): GBP 990 to GBP 9,900.
  • Middle band (for those cases which do not merit a higher award): GBP 9,900 to GBP 29,600.
  • The upper band (the most serious cases): GBP 29,600 to GBP 49,300.
  • An award of over GBP 49,300 may still be awarded in the most exceptional cases.
