        Vento bands: Revised bands of compensation for injury to feelings 

        The Presidents of the Employment Tribunals have published the revised bands of compensation for injury to feelings in discrimination cases. The new bands are as follows:

        • Lower band – £900 to £8,600 for less serious cases
        • Middle band –£8,600 to £25,700 for cases that do not merit an award in the upper band
        • Upper band – £25,700 to £42,900 for the most serious cases
        • Exceptional cases – £42,900 or above

        The new bands apply to claims presented on or after 6 April 2018 and will be reviewed annually. The Presidential Guidance originally issued on 5 September 2017 remains relevant to claims presented before 6 April 2018.
