The Vento Guidelines have been updated

The Presidents of the Employment Tribunals have updated the Vento bands of awards for injury to feelings.

The Presidents of the Employment Tribunals (England and Wales) and (Scotland) have issued a joint Second Addendum to the Presidential Guidance originally issued on 5 September 2017. It contains the annual update to the Vento guidelines, setting out the bands of awards for injury to feelings, adjusted for inflation.


The new Vento bands are:

Lower band (less serious cases): £900 to £8,800
Middle band: £8,800 to £26,300
Upper band (the most serious cases): £26,300 to £44,000

These updated figures apply to cases presented on or after 6 April 2019.
