After the tribunal, you will be sent a written copy of the its decision. In some circumstances, if you lose your case you may be able to ask for a review of the tribunal's decision, or appeal to the Employment Appeal Tribunal on a 'point of law', for example.
You have 42 days from the date you received the tribunal's decision to appeal. If you win your case but the tribunal does not make a decision on what compensation you shoudl receive, then a 'remedies hearing' will be held.
Often this is separate from the liability hearing and this may involve detailed evidence of what loss a complaint has suffered as a result of the unlawful treatment, such as racial discrimination. You will need to provide details of any loss of earnings or benefits and any other evidence that will help the tribunal decide what compensation you should receive. This may include evidence from doctors or psychiatrists indicating any physical or mental effect the racial discrimination has had on you.
In discrimination claims, compensation may also be awarded for 'injury to feelings' which is separate from and additional to an award relating to, for example, loss of earnings.
