New compensation bands in discrimination claims

In October The President of the Employment Tribunals (England and Wales) and the President of the Employment Tribunals (Scotland) released guidance regarding the value of awards for discrimination claims presented from 11th September 2017.

History of the bands 

Vento vs The Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police originally set our the bands for injury to feeling rewards. Judicial announcements have updated these over the years, earning the term ‘Vento Bands’.

Vento Bands going forward 

£800 – £8,400 (Lower band)

£8,400 – £25,200 (Middle band)

£24,300 – £40,500 (Higher band)

We ask all employers to seriously consider undertaking leadership development training for their managers. Training can highly reduce the risk a business can face as managers will be fully trained. CPD Accredited Training
