The Price of Discrimination in England

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

Disability £21,339/£8,000

Race £18,200/£6,325

Sex Discrimination £13,312/£9,109

Sexual Orientation £33,724/£6,364

Combined £37,655/£26,014

It would be interesting to see a similar study of American awards.
