Employment Appeal Tribunal. [1999] IRLR 158. Full judgment: bailii.org.

A multiple sclerosis sufferer was dismissed. The Industrial Tribunal awarded £7,627.50 compensation, including £500 for injury to feelings.

The Employment Appeal Tribunal said that given there was no maximum limit on compensation the tribunal should have considered more carefully the compensation for future loss, perhaps involving the parties in careful pre-preparation under the management of the tribunal.

Also, the £500 for injury to feelings could not be interfered with on the grounds that it was inevitably too low. Each case would depend on its own facts.
