Ozog v Cadogan Hotel Partners Ltd

Employment – Discrimination. The employment tribunal, having found that the employer was liable for sex discrimination and harassment of the employee, ordered that it pay the employee an award for injury to feelings, which would be subject to a 25% uplift for failure to follow the ACAS Code on Discipline and Grievance at Work 2009. The Employment Appeal Tribunal, in allowing the employer's appeal, held that the award was manifestly too high and that there was no basis for the uplift. Accordingly, the award would be substituted for a smaller amount and the judgment on the uplift would be quashed.
