Vento bands: Revised bands of compensation for injury to feelings

The Presidents of the Employment Tribunals have published the revised bands of compensation for injury to feelings in discrimination cases.  The new bands are as follows:

Lower band - £990 to £9,900 – for less serious cases

Middle band - £9,900 to £29,600 – for cases that do not merit an award in the upper band

Upper band - £29,600 to £49,300 – for the most serious cases

Exceptional cases - £49,300 or above

The new bands apply to claims presented on or after 6 April 2022 and will be reviewed annually. 

In respect of claims presented in Scotland, the bands remain subject to paragraph 12 of the Presidential Guidance issued on 5 September 2017. 

If you need any assistance with regard to the new payments and limits and/or the Vento bands, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the UK employment team.
