The Presidents of the Employment Tribunals in England & Wales and Scotland have updated the bands of awards for injury to feelings, known as the Vento bands.

In respect of claims presented on or after 6 April 2022, the Vento bands shall be as follows:


a lower band of £990 to £9,900 (less serious cases);

a middle band of £9,900 to £29,600 (cases that do not merit an award in the upper band); and

an upper band of £29,600 to £49,300 (the most serious cases), with the most exceptional cases capable of exceeding £49,300.


Discriminatory claims can be very costly for employers.  For information on how we can support your business with our Arch.Employer Product and legal expense cover, contact Kareena Prescott at for a free consultation meeting.
