Vento bands increase


The bands of compensation that employment tribunals can award for injury to feelings in discrimination and whistleblowing cases, known as Vento bands, will increase next month.

The new Vento bands are:

  • Lower band (for less serious cases) - £900 to £9,000.
  • Middle band (for cases that do not merit an award in the upper band) - £9,000 to £27,000.
  • Upper band (for the most serious cases) - £27,000 to £45,000.

Awards in the most exceptional cases are capable of exceeding £45,000.

These updated figures will apply to claims presented on or after 6 April 2020.
