In Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police v Vento, the EAT upholds an appeal against an employment tribunal's manifestly excessive awards of £165,000 for future loss of earnings, and £65,000 for injury to feelings (which included £15,000 aggravated damages) to a former probationer police officer who suffered unlawful sex discrimination.
- 1 February 2002
In Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police v Vento (No.2) (4 December 2001), the EAT has reduced an award for injury to feelings from £65,000 to £30,000. It also found that the tribunal's award for future loss of earnings was wrong, as the statistical evidence did not support the basis of its assessment of the applicant's future career in the police force.
