The 2024 annual update to the Vento guidelines (which give ranges for injury to feelings awards in discrimination cases, depending on severity) have been published.

In respect of claims presented on or after 6 April 2024, the Vento bands are:


  • a lower band of £1,200 to £11,700 (less serious cases);
  • a middle band of £11,700 to £35,200 (cases that do not merit an award in the upper band); and,
  • an upper band of £35,200 to £58,700 (the most serious cases), with the most exceptional cases capable of exceeding £58,700.
