The Presidents of the Employment Tribunal in England & Wales, and Scotland have released a Joint Response to the Vento Bands Consultation. The new ‘Vento’ bands will apply to any claims issued on or after 06 April 2018 and will be:-
• lower band (less serious cases): £900 to £8,600
• middle band: £8,600 to £25,700
• upper band (the most serious cases): £25,700 to £42,900
• exceptional cases: over £42,900
The guidance is not binding but tribunals must have to regard it.
