EAT gives guidance on injury to feelings

    ICTS (UK) Ltd v Tchoula [2000] IRLR 643 EAT (0 other reports)

In ICTS (UK) Ltd v Tchoula the EAT has found that an award of £27,000 for injury to feelings, including aggravated damages, to a black man who was found to have been dismissed because he had made allegations of race discrimination was so excessive as to amount to an error of law.

The approach suggested by the EAT to test whether the award was excessive was to take a sample of reported awards, mainly from this journal, and to group them into higher and lower categories.
