Employment tribunals - discrimination - calculating compensation for personal injury

If you make a claim for discrimination to an employment tribunal, you can claim compensation for a personal injury you have suffered, as well as for money you've lost because of the discrimination.

This page explains more about making a claim for personal injury.

What personal injuries can you claim for?

If you've been discriminated against by your employer, this may have an effect on your health. In severe cases, the discrimination may cause you to become anxious or depressed. This can have a severe pyschological effect on your mental wellbeing and your life.

If this happens, you may be able to make a claim for personal injury and claim compensation for this.

How to prove a claim for personal injury

You'll need medical evidence to prove the discrimination has caused you the personal injury. You'll also need to get specialist advice on

  • the strength of your claim
  • how much it might be worth
  • whether you should make a personal injury claim in addition to a claim for injury to feelings.
