Modesto Residents Deserve the Best Representation Possible
With a population of more than 200,000 residents, Modesto is home to many hardworking people. While residents often commute to work in nearby cities around the Great Central Valley, Modesto features job opportunities of its own. Top employers in town include: E&J Gallo Winery, Memorial Medical Center, Walmart, and the city school system.
While most employers strive to follow California’s labor laws, this isn’t always the case. When a worker experiences discrimination, or harassment in the workplace, a good lawyer can help that worker obtain just compensation.

What Compensation Can a Worker Recover?
While it’s impossible to provide a specific dollar amount on a potential employment settlement or judgment, it’s possible to discuss the different types of compensation available. Continue reading to learn about the main categories.
Sometimes, employers fail to properly compensate their workers. This can be the result of discrimination, harassment, or because of personal leave issues. Whatever the case, back pay is sometimes awarded to workers who were denied rightful compensation for their work.
Pain and Suffering
Workers who suffer discrimination, wrongful termination or other issues often experience physical and emotional problems as a result. In some cases, juries will award compensation for pain and suffering. This can include any of the following ailments:
- Muscle Spasms
- Back Pain
- Other Issues
Picture an employee who earns $45,000 annually, and who is wrongfully terminated. After suing the employer, the worker is unable to find work for three years. This employee could be eligible for lost wages in the form of the annual salary amount. After three years without work, this amount could total $135,000.
Why Contact an Employment Lawyer?
If you’re dealing with any of the issues listed in the previous section, there are a number of reasons why it might be a good idea to consult a labor attorney. Not least among these, any company sued by a worker is likely to have legal representation of its own. Additionally, companies are more likely to take a worker’s suit seriously if that worker is properly represented. This is particularly when the lawyer representing the employee has a track record of high-sum awards (as is the case with Bohm Law attorneys).
Aside from the benefits of having proper legal representation, a worker often has little to lose by consulting an employment attorney. In many instances, labor attorneys take cases on a contingency basis. This means the client doesn’t pay out-of-pocket legal expenses. Instead, the attorney is paid with a percentage of the final award or settlement.
If you live in Modesto, or in a nearby city, and are dealing with a workplace legal issue, don’t suffer in silence. Contact the Bohm Law Group to see how they can help.
