Stockton Residents Deserve the Best Representation Possible
With a population of more than 307,000 residents, Stockton was born of the California Gold Rush. Though the city may look a lot different now, it was home to hard working people struggling to carve out a life for themselves then, and that hasn’t changed. While most of us have been taught to be grateful to the companies that create the jobs that benefit our economy, there are times when companies ignore the laws designed to protect workers. When this happens, a good employment attorney should be consulted.

What Can a Worker Recover in an Employment Lawsuit?
While it’s impossible to offer a specific dollar amount when discussing the outcome of a lawsuit, it is possible to talk about the different types of compensation employment attorneys seek for their worker-clients.

An employee who is denied proper wages due to discrimination, or some other workplace violation, might be entitled to eventually receive this money at the conclusion of a lawsuit.
Imagine an employee who was making $50,000 annual salary at the time of wrongful termination. The employee sues the company, but is unable to find work for three years. This employee could be entitled to lost wages which would be the salary amount multiplied by each year without work. In this case, the amount would be $150,000.
These types of damages serve as compensation for:
- Muscle Spasms
- Other Ailments
Although exceedingly rare, punitive damages are not unheard of. In fact, these are the types of awards that are high sum, and often make headlines. They are designed to punish the employer and prevent the violation from ever occurring again. In order to obtain punitive damages, the plaintiff must show that the employer acted with fraud, malice or oppression.
