Key points

  • In Vento v Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police (No.2) [2003] IRLR 102, the Court of Appeal holds that an employment tribunal was entitled to award £165,000 for future loss of earnings to a probationer police constable who suffered sex discrimination, culminating in her dismissal at the age of 30, two years after her appointment.
  • The award was based on the tribunal's finding that there was a 75% chance that the complainant would have completed a full career in the police force up to the age of 55.
