New Vento bands for injury to feelings awards

Following the recent Vento bands consultation, the bands of compensation for injury to feelings awards in discrimination cases have been increased.

The awards made for injury to feelings are based on the awards set out in the original case of Vento v Chief Constable of West Yorkshire.

These awards are often made as a matter of course in discrimination cases as well as others.

They are determined depending on how bad the level of discrimination is and how serious the injury that is caused.

The new Vento bands are:

  • Lower Band: £800 to £8,400
  • Middle Band: £8,400 to £25,200
  • Upper Band: £25,200 - £42,000
  • Exceptional cases: £42,000 +
