What Can A Worker Recover in an Employment Lawsuit?
While it’s impossible to predict exactly what a person will recover in an employment lawsuit, it’s possible to discuss the types of compensation workers may be entitled to.
An employee who has been wrongfully dismissed, might be reinstated following a court judgment, and in addition, he or she could be entitled to back pay.
Meanwhile, employees who were wrongfully fired and unable to find work might be eligible for lost wages. Consider a hypothetical example in which a person made an annual salary of $50,000. If that person were awarded lost wages, he or she would be entitled to that amount for each year of unemployment.
Persons who suffer from headaches, insomnia, depression, anxiety and other health ailments as the result of harassment, discrimination or retaliation might be eligible for pain and suffering compensation.
Finally, in rare cases, punitive damages are awarded.
Whether or Not to Contact an Attorney
If you live in Walnut Creek, or some other Northern California city, and are dealing with an employment issue, it makes good sense to contact an attorney. Companies faced with discrimination, harassment or wrongful termination suits tend to take plaintiffs more seriously when represented by an attorney. Furthermore, when the plaintiff’s attorney has a track record of high-sum judgments (as in the case of Bohm Law Group), it can be an added advantage for the plaintiff.
California employment lawyers typically take cases on a contingency basis, which means the client doesn’t pay out-of-pocket expenses. Put simply, it could well be worth the time and effort to schedule an initial consultation.
