The Schedule of Loss tells the Employment Tribunal how much you think you should be paid if you are successful. If your discrimination claim is successful, the Employment Tribunal will order your Employer to pay you compensation. In discrimination, compensation is meant to place you in the same position you would have been in if your employer had not discriminated against you. 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;
Injury to feelings for the upset, hurt and distress that your Employer has caused you. This can range from £750 up to £30,000 depending on how serious your Employer’s actions were.
Personal injury is where the unlawful discrimination of your Employer caused you physical or mental injury. The award is made according to guidelines issued by the Judicial College Guidelines for the Assessment of damages in Personal Injury cases.
Aggravated damages is awarded where your Employer has acted in a particularly malicious, insulting or oppressive way.
Exemplary damages are very rarely awarded by the Employment Tribunal. They are intended to punish a state Employer where the actions were “oppressive, arbitrary or unconstitutional.
