Vento Bands (Injury to feelings compensation)

  • Posted on

The 2024 annual update to the Vento guidelines have been published.

Awards for injury to feelings can be made in discrimination claims, for example where there has been a failure to make reasonable adjustments or an act of harassment.

In respect of claims presented on or after 6 April 2024, the Vento bands are:

Lower band (less serious cases) £1,200 to £11,700
Middle band (cases that do not merit an award in the upper band) £11,700 to £35,200
Upper band (the most serious cases) £35,200 to £58,700, with the most exceptional cases capable of exceeding £58,700.


According to the annual Employment Tribunal award statistics published for 2022/23, the biggest award of compensation in the 2022/23 reporting period was in a disability discrimination claim where the individual was awarded £1,767,869, however only £38,678 of this was in respect of injury to feelings.
