Vento guidelines

In employment cases involving unlawful discrimination, tribunals may, at their discretion, make an award for “injury to feelings” under the Equality Act 2010. In short, this is an award for damages as a remedy for things such as humiliation, degrading treatment or distress suffered by the employee. Note that any such award is entirely separate to the financial loss suffered by the victim and lays separately alongside this.

The Vento bands, therefore, act as a guideline for the tribunals to calculate the amount to award for “injury to feeling”.
