The article presents the author's opinion on how the compensation for employment discrimination cases is decided. According to him, with discrimination claims there are often a number of claims, although they will usually include unfair dismissal and an injury to feelings award. He says that compensation should be calculated to produce an award that equates to putting the individual back into the position they would have been in had the unlawful discrimination not taken place.
