What Type of Compensation Is Possible in an Employment Lawsuit?
It’s impossible to give a specific figure when discussing the judgments and settlements for victims of discrimination, harassment or retaliation. However, it is possible to discuss the specific types of compensation one stands to gain in these types of lawsuits.
In some cases, a terminated employee might be reinstated at his or her job and awarded back pay.
Lost wages might be awarded to those who are unable to find work after they’ve experienced wrongful termination or discrimination. A hypothetical example of this might be an employee making $55,000 annually at the time of termination. If awarded lost wages, that person might stand to collect $55,000 for each year he or she was unable to find work.
Pain and suffering damages might be awarded to those who experience physical and mental symptoms stemming from the harassment, discrimination or termination. Such symptoms could include:
- Muscle Aches
- High Blood Pressure
- Other Symptoms
The state has also made it more attractive for lawyers to take on these types of cases by allowing victims of workplace discrimination to seek legal fees.
In rare cases, punitive damages are awarded. However, these are difficult to obtain because the plaintiff must demonstrate that the company acted with fraud, malice or oppression.
Should You Contact a Lawyer?
If you believe you’ve been a victim of discrimination, harassment or retaliation, it could be well worth your time and effort to find out if you have a case.
In California, employment attorneys often work on a contingency basis, which means the client doesn’t pay until a settlement or judgment is reached. It could be well worth a worker’s time and effort to find out if they have a case.
While a worker who decides to sue an employer isn’t required to hire an attorney, it’s important to remember that companies are more likely to take a case seriously if the plaintiff is properly represented. Companies are also more likely to take notice if the plaintiff is represented by an attorney with a track record of high sum judgments (as in the case of the Bohm Group).
