This table only includes decisions where compensation was awarded. The amount of compensation awarded takes into account any reduction for contributory conduct. Furthermore, Employment Relations Authority awards that have been set aside or altered by the Employment Court are included in the table. Where two successful applicants were awarded separate amounts, those amounts are recorded separately.

While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information provided in this table, the Employment Court, Employment Relations Authority and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment accept no liability for any consequences that may arise from reliance on this data.
