Berkeley Employment Lawyers
The city of Berkeley is so much more than a college town. It is a locus of social change and innovative thinking. It’s also home to tens of thousands of hard-working Californians.
Whether you live in the city of Berkeley, or somewhere else in the Bay Area, if you are experiencing discrimination or harassment at work, consider scheduling a consultation with the employment lawyers at the office of Lawrance Bohm.
Incorporated in 1878, Berkeley is home to the oldest campus in the University of California system. As of the 2010 census, it had a population of 112,850.
When not busy working, Berkeley residents are blessed with a wealth of adventure opportunities: from strolling down Telegraph Hill, to enjoying the vistas of the bay from Cesar Chavez park, or eating at Alice Waters’ famous Bistro, Chez Panisse. Whatever a person’s taste, Berkeley has the flavor.
But unfortunately, where there are hard working people, there are also employers who flaunt the law, and Berkeley is no exception.

What Type of Compensation Can You Recover in an Employment Case?
While it’s impossible to predict the specific amount a person will win in an employment lawsuit, it’s possible to discuss the different types of compensation.
In cases involving wrongful termination, a plaintiff might be reinstated at their job and given back pay.
Lost wages might be ordered in cases where an employee is unable to find work after termination. Hypothetically, a person making $65,000 at the time of termination could be compensated $65,000 for each year he or she is unable to find work.
Clients who experience headaches, anxiety, depression, insomnia or other physical or emotional ailments related to harassment or termination may be entitled to appropriate compensation.
In rare cases, punitive damages may be awarded.
Additionally, the law allows the recovery of attorney’s fees in employment cases.
Contacting a Lawyer
Whether you live and work in the picturesque surroundings of the San Francisco Bay, or somewhere else in Northern California, if you are experiencing harassment or discrimination, it could be worth your time and effort to contact Lawrance Bohm.
It’s important to keep in mind that companies dealing with harassment or other employment suits, are more likely to take the case seriously when the plaintiff has a good attorney. This is particularly true in cases involving attorneys with a track record of high-sum judgments (such as the Bohm Group).
In California, employment attorneys typically take cases on a contingency basis, which means the client doesn’t pay out-of-pocket expenses. Rather, the attorney is paid once a settlement or judgment is reached.
If you have an employment law question, contact Mr. Bohm to see how he can help.
