Webinar: How to maximise and defend high-value claims

Webinar: How to maximise and defend high-value claims

In 2019/2020, average awards for the most common discrimination complaints were as follows:

Race - £9,801; Sex - £17,420; Disability - £27,043; Religious/Belief - £0; Sexual Orientation - £27,936 and Age - £38,794.

The highest award made in the same period were as follows: Race - £30,330; Sex - £73,619; Disability - £265,519; Religious - £0; Sexual Orientation - £96,645; and Age - £243,636.

If you are not startled by those figures, perhaps a reminder that in April 2020, the EAT upheld an award in the region of £4.7m by an ET, as damages in a disability discrimination claim. Although this is the exception, it serves as a useful reminder that compensation for discrimination is unlimited and can cover non-financial losses.

As the title subjects, this webinar explores what claimants and respondents can do to maximise or minimise respectively the level of compensation awarded by an ET.
