    Law reports

    In Cadogan Hotel Partners Ltd v Ozog EAT/0001/14, the EAT held that an employment tribunal had erred in awarding a claimant £10,000 for injury to feelings in a discrimination claim. The tribunal had incorrectly focused on the way in which the employer had dealt with the employee's complaint, which had not been the subject of the complaint, and had not been found to be an act of discrimination. The correct focus on the injury suffered by the claimant would have led to an award of £6,600.
