I was awarded £162k for injury to feelings, past and future loss of earnings after facing disability discrimination and losing my job. The employment tribunal instructed my former employer to pay me a grossed up figure of £232k to account for income taxes I would need to pay. My issue is that I’ve also landed a student loan repayment bill of nearly £17,000 after completing my self assessment tax return. This can’t be right? Are compensation/termination payments on account of discrimination not exempted from student loan deductions? Many thanks
