The amount of compensation claimants can receive for injury to feelings will get a slight boost when the Presidents of the Employment Tribunals new guidance on this comes into effect on 6th April 2018.

The changes are nothing radical but reflect the application of RPI All Items Index to the compensation limits in the Presidents’ response to judicial consultation on injury to feelings damages published in September 2017. The full Response can be obtained here.

For claims issues on or after 6th April 2018 the bands of compensation will be:

Lower band: £900-£8,600;

Middle Band: £8,600-£25,700;

Upper Band: £25,700-£42,900.
