Compensation for injury to feelings in discrimination cases is awarded according to three bands depending on the seriousness of the injury. The bands were set by the Court of Appeal in 2002 at £500 to £5,000, £5,000 to £15,000 and £15,000 to £25,000. The EAT has now ruled that the tops of the bands should increase to £6,000, £18,000 and £30,000 respectively. (Da'Bell v NSPCC, EAT)
