Injury to feelings
compensates you for emotional distress
caused by the discrimination. You will need to prove that you suffered distress, for example by providing a doctor’s report if you’ve received medical support.
The amount awarded for injury to feelings is split into bands depending on the seriousness of the discrimination. For claims issued after 6th April 2021 these bands are:
£990-£9,900 for less serious cases or one-off acts of discrimination
£9,900 - £29,600 for more serious cases, but where the top band is not justified
£29,600 - £49,300 for the most serious cases, such as a sustained case of discrimination
Exceptional cases may exceed £49,300
The Tribunal will consider whether the discrimination was deliberate, how your employer responded to the discrimination, and the effect
it has had on you.
