Many thanks for your patience. First of all there is no cap on discrimination claims. The Vento guidelines are there to serve as a guidance and not a legal limit. However, the top limit can usually be exceeded only in the most exceptional cases.
However, if there are entirely separate acta of discrimination, then each can carry its own compensation and in these cases the total award can be exceeded. The Vento guidelines can be taken into account for one complaint for discrimination even when it has comprised numerous acts over time. If there were may separate incidents of discrimination though, which were not related and are treated all as separate acts, then they can each attract separate compensation, which would not be limited.
Whether they are treated separately or as part of one large, ongoing, act of discrimination is for the tribunal to decide. It could be a complex determination which takes time, but to start with you can treat them separately and apportion compensation for each alleged discriminatory ground.
