Directors personally liable for discrimination compensation

In the case of Bungay and Paul v Chandel and others the EAT has recently ruled that two directors were personally liable to pay compensation for discrimination.  

They were found to be jointly and severally liable, together with the employer, to pay compensation and aggravated damages for discrimination. As the employer went into liquidation after the compensation was awarded, the directors were left liable for the full amount.
