What Compensation Can You Recover in an Employment Lawsuit?
No lawyer can say definitely what a client will collect in an employment lawsuit. However, there are specific types of compensation that plaintiffs in employment cases may be entitled to.
For instance, a wrongfully terminated employee might be entitled to back pay. Or perhaps the court will award the worker an amount for lost wages. In this case, if the employee was unable to find work for two years following termination, he or she might be awarded the annual salary amount for each year without work. For instance, if the annual salary was $50,000, he or she might be awarded $100,000 in lost wages.
In cases where the plaintiff suffers from physical or emotional ailments as a result of harassment or termination, he or she may be entitled to pain and suffering damages. These might be awarded if the worker suffers from any of the following:
- Muscle Spasms
Lastly, in cases where the plaintiff can demonstrate that the employer acted with malice, fraud or oppression, punitive damages might be possible. While punitive damages often result in high-sum awards, they are rare. If you believe you are entitled to punitive damages, consider scheduling a consultation with the Bohm Group.
Do You Need a Lawyer?
If you’re living in Folsom, or some other Sacramento County city, and are dealing with an employment issue, you should definitely consider discussing your case with a lawyer. When it comes to filing an employment claim against a company, it’s important to consider a few things:
- Companies appreciate the importance of good legal representation, and will likely have an attorney (or attorneys) of their own.
- Employers are more likely to take a case seriously if the plaintiff is properly represented.
- When the plaintiff attorney has a record of high-sum judgments (as in the case of Bohm Law) it’s a bigger advantage.
- Employment lawyers often take cases on a contingency basis, which means the client doesn’t pay out-of-pocket expenses.
In short, a worker who files claim against an employer has little to lose by talking to a lawyer first. It could be well worth the worker’s time and effort to schedule an initial consultation.
