Compensation for Employees
While it’s impossible to predict the outcome of a legal action, it is possible to discuss the different types of compensation a worker might recover in a lawsuit. Keep reading to learn more:
In cases where discrimination has led to a worker being denied proper wages, a court might order the company to issue back pay. This is an amount that can add up significantly depending on how long the discrimination has occurred.
This type of compensation can be illustrated with a hypothetical example. Imagine an employee who is making $55,000 annually when wrongfully terminated. This employee could be issued the annual salary amount for each year he or she is unable to find work. At three years, this amount could total $165,000
Pain and Suffering
In addition to financial issues, a person who experiences discrimination or harassment could experience emotional and physical issues. These could include:
- High Blood Pressure
- Other ailments
These types of awards often make headlines because of their high-sum amounts. However, they are rare. In order to obtain punitive damages, the employee must show that the company acted with fraud, malice or oppression.
Contacting an Attorney
While some employees hesitate to contact an attorney for fear of cost, it’s important to remember that it could be well worth it to schedule an initial consultation with an employment attorney to find out if a case exists. Often, attorneys take employment cases on a contingency basis.
