HM Land Registry v McGlue EAT/0435/11

Reports relating to this case:

  • Sex discrimination: No proper basis for aggravated damages award

    9 July 2013

    In HM Land Registry v McGlue EAT/0435/11, the EAT held that there was no sufficient basis for an award of aggravated damages in circumstances where the tribunal had relied on substantially the same feature of the case in deciding on the amount of the injury to feelings award. However, the employee had been discriminated against by not being offered a voluntary severance package, and she was entitled to recover the value of that package as compensation even though she had continued to be employed.
