Can a claimant claim for "injury to feelings" when making a complaint of discrimination to an employment tribunal?

Under the Equality Act 2010, compensation may be awarded for injury to feelings in respect of discrimination related to all of the protected characteristics (ie age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation). However, such compensation is not available in equal pay cases. The exact amount paid will vary greatly depending on a variety of factors including the vulnerability of the claimant, the degree of hurt, distress or upset caused, the position of the person who was found to be discriminating and the seriousness of the treatment meted out to the claimant.
