What Can a Worker Win in an Employment Lawsuit?
While no lawyer can predict what a client will recover in a lawsuit, it is possible to discuss the different types of compensation a worker may be entitled to. Continue reading to learn a little more about the different types of compensation available.
In some cases, an employee is denied his or her rightful wages. This could be the result of discrimination, harassment or personal leave issues. A judge might order the company to issue back pay for the hours not properly compensated. In some cases, the employee might be reinstated to his or her job.
Imagine an employee who makes an annual salary of $50,000 at the time he or she is wrongfully terminated. If that worker were to successfully sue the employer and win after three years of being unable to find work, that employee could potentially collect $150,000 in lost wages — or $50,000 for each year without work.
Pain and Suffering
Losing a job is stressful. Dealing with harassment, discrimination or some other employment violation only adds to that stress. A person who suffers any of the following issues as the result of workplace violations of law could potentially be financially compensated:
- Muscle Spasms
- Other ailments
Contacting a Labor Lawyer
Whether you live in the city of Pleasanton or merely visit from nearby for the annual county fair, if you’re experiencing an employment issue, you need a good attorney to help you exercise your legal rights. It could well be worth your time and effort to schedule an initial consultation. In many instances, cases are taken on a contingency basis. This means the client doesn’t pay any out-of-pocket expenses. Instead, the client and attorney agree on a fee taken from a percentage of the final settlement or judgment.
When looking at an employment case from the company’s perspective, it’s worth mentioning that most employers will have attorneys representing their interests. They are also more likely to take a case seriously if the plaintiff is properly represented.
