If your discrimination claim is successful, the Employment Tribunal will order your Employer to pay you compensation.

There is no limit on the amount of compensation that the Employment Tribunal can award for discrimination. Compensation is made up of your financial lost, interest as well as any of these types of compensation, depending on the facts of your case;
