Turlock Residents Deserve the Best Representation Possible
The second largest city in Stanislaus County, Turlock is home to a Cal State University and the Stanislaus County Fair. With a population of more than 70,000, it goes without saying that Turlock is also home to many hard working people. While most of us have been raised to value hard work and the companies that create jobs, there are instances where companies fall short of their obligations and flaunt the laws designed to protect workers. When a company violates a worker’s rights, it’s recommended the worker speak with a qualified employment attorney.

What Can an Employee Recover in an Employment Lawsuit?

In some cases, company discrimination or harassment can lead to an employee being denied his or her rightful wages. A court might order a company to issue back pay for time worked.
An easy way to understand how lost wages would be figured is as follows:
Imagine an employee making an annual salary of $55,000 at the time he or she is wrongfully terminated. Imagine then the employee is unable to find work for three years following termination. He or she might be compensated with lost wages equaling the annual salary amount for each year without work. In this hypothetical case, that amount would equal $165,000.
Pain and Suffering
Harassment, discrimination and wrongful termination don’t only cause financial problems. They can cause physical symptoms as well. Financial compensation might be the remedy. Pain and suffering can include:
- Panic Attacks
- Muscle Spasms
- Other Ailments
Though exceedingly rare, punitive damages often take the form of high-sum judgements. They are designed to punish the employer and prevent the workplace violation from ever occurring again.
