What Can You Recover in an Employment Lawsuit?
While it’s impossible to talk about what a client might recover in specific dollar amounts, it’s possible to talk about the different types of compensation a worker might receive as the result of workplace violations.
For instance, a worker who has been wrongfully terminated and subsequently unable to find work might be awarded lost wages. A hypothetical example might involve a worker who was earning $65,000 annually at the time the wrongful termination occurred. If he or she were unable to find work for two years, he or she might be awarded $130,000 in lost wages.
Meanwhile, workers who suffer physical and emotional upset related to harassment, discrimination or termination, could be awarded compensation for pain and suffering. Pain and suffering can occur as the following:
- Muscle Spasms
- Other ailments
In rare cases, an employee may be able to recover what are known as punitive damages. This type of compensation often results in high-sum awards. Punitive damages are designed to deter the employer from ever engaging in the violation again. However, punitive damages are difficult to obtain as the plaintiff must show that the employer acted with malice, oppression or fraud.
Should You Contact a Lawyer?
If you are considering a claim against an employer, and are considering going it alone, first consider the following:
- Employers are more likely to take a case seriously if the plaintiff is properly represented.
- Employers will more than likely have an attorney of their own (possibly multiple attorneys).
- In many cases employment lawyers take cases on a contingency basis, which means you might not have to pay any out-of-pocket expenses for legal representation.
The purpose of sharing this information is to let you know that it could be well worth your time to consult an employment attorney to find out if you have a case.
If you’ve suffered as the result of discrimination, harassment or some other workplace violation, contact the Bohm Group to explore your options.
