Compensation Awards in Employment Tribunal claims of discrimination, harassment, victimisation and detriment for Injury to Feelings awards shall increase on or after 6 April 2024.

For claims presented on or after 6 April 2024, the bands will be:

  • a lower band of £1,200 to £11,700 (for less serious cases);

  • a middle band of £11,700 to £35,200 (for cases that do not merit an award in the upper band); and

  • an upper band of £35,200 to £58,700 (for the most serious cases).

In the most exceptional cases, awards may exceed £58,700.

This is important information for Claimants issuing employment claims or at the stage of pre-action disputes or Early ACAS Conciliation.

Respondent Employers also need to be aware of this when defending Employment Tribunal claims or engaged in work-place disputes as the value risk on settlements and compensation is even greater.
