There's a limit. If my memory serves me, for example, the limit for punitive and non-monetary damages is $20,000 in a single case. However, the amount of damages could be quite substantial in the case of monetary losses suffered by an individual.
The most important thing is not necessarily the damages as such, but rather the fact that the tribunal issues an order. Although some people seem to say an order isn't important, the point in this instance is to connect the parties and compel the institution to correct its behaviour. The tribunal's order is more than a mere recommendation; the institution is thereby directed to make changes in accordance with a schedule or else be held in contempt of the tribunal.
