Sex discrimination: Award of £750 for injury to feelings upheld

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Orlando v Didcot Power Station Sports & Social Club [1996] IRLR 262, the EAT holds that an industrial tribunal's award of £750 for injury to feelings to a part-time employee, who was dismissed because she was pregnant, could not be faulted. The removal of the cap on awards of compensation for unlawful sex discrimination did not necessarily mean that the award should have been higher, and statistics showed that it was not perversely low.
