The Presidents of the Employment Tribunals have issued a joint consultation statement, seeking views on increasing the bands for damages for injury to feelings and psychiatric injury in line with the RPI. The bands were last formally updated eight years ago, in 2009.
The proposed new bands for injury to feelings are:-
- lower band: £1,000 to £8,000;
- middle band: £8,000 to £25,000; and
- upper band: £25,000 to £42,000.
Responses are invited by Friday 25 August 2017.
