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 - £1,200 to £11,700 – for less serious cases
Middle band - £11,700 to £35,200 – for cases that do not merit an award in the upper band
Upper band - £35,200 to £58,700 – for the most serious cases 
Exceptional cases - £58,700 or above  

The new bands apply to claims presented on or after 6 April 2024 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.
