What Can You Recover in an Employment Lawsuit?
While there is no way to guarantee that you will win a specific amount in an employment lawsuit, it is possible to discuss the different types of compensation available.
Reinstatement, Back Pay
In some cases after an employee wins a wrongful termination suit, he or should could potentially be reinstated and given back pay.
In other instances, lost wages might be awarded. To understand what this means, imagine an employee who has making $65,000 annually when wrongfully terminated. If that employee were awarded lost wages, that means an amount equivalent to the annual salary for each year he or she was unable to find work. If the amount of time were three years, this could total $195,000.
Pain and Suffering
It’s easy to forget the fact that discrimination, wrongful termination and harassment can cause physical and mental anguish. A person who suffers as the result of an employer’s bad decisions should be entitled to compensation. An employee could potentially win judgments after dealing with any of the following ailments:
- Muscle Spasms
California law provides powerful incentive for employment attorneys to take these types of cases, allowing lawyers to recover expenses as part of a final judgment.
Punitive judgments often come in large amounts and are designed to punish the employer in order to prevent future discrimination or harassment. However, punitive judgments are extremely rare. In order to win punitive damages the plaintiff must show the employer acted with fraud, malice or oppression.
Why You Should Contact an Employment Attorney
Whether you live in Roseville, or some other Northern California city, if you’ve suffered injustice at the hands of an employer, it could well be worth your time to consult an attorney.
Often, employment attorneys take cases on a contingency basis. This means that the client doesn’t pay out-of-pocket expenses. Rather, the client and attorney will agree to a percentage of the final settlement or judgment.
Workers who consider representing themselves in a claim against an employer should keep in mindthat a company is more likely to take a case seriously if the plaintiff is represented by a good attorney. Companies will pay extra attention if the plaintiff attorney has a track record of winning high-sum judgments (as in the case of the Bohm Law Group).
If you’ve experienced discrimination, harassment, or some other employment-related injustice, contact the Bohm Law Group to see how they can help.
