One of the blogs I follow is from PJHLaw, a Stamford, Lincolnshire, UK law firm that refers to itself as “Exclusively Employment Law Solicitors”. Today, they had an interesting summary of 2008 awards in discrimination cases, Equal Opportunities Review.
The key numbers –
Average/ Median Compensation Awards in 2008
Age Discrimination £15,080/4,503
Sex Discrimination £13,312/£9,109
Sexual Orientation £33,724/£6,364
It would be interesting to see a similar study of American awards.
