Yuba City Employment Attorneys
Whether you live in Yuba City, or some other city in Sutter County, if you’re dealing with an employment-legal issue, consider scheduling a consultation with attorney Lawrance Bohm.
With offices located in Stockton and Sacramento, Mr. Bohm represents employees in Yuba City and other cities throughout Northern California.
As of the 2010 census, Yuba City has a population of 64,925 people. It is home to the largest dried fruit processing plant in the world, and is the number four producer of rice in the world. It goes without saying that Yuba City is home to a lot of hard working people. Sadly, where there are hard workers, there are companies willing to flout the laws designed to protect those workers.
The Bohm Law Group has an established track record of obtaining high sum judgments for clients, and handles a wide range of cases, from wrongful termination, to sexual harassment to whistleblower retaliation.
About The Bohm Law Group
Mr. Bohm studied law at the University of Tulane in Louisiana. He graduated cum laude in 2000, and took a job as an associate attorney litigating personal injury, civil rights and employment claims. In 2005, he established the Bohm Law Group, which represents employees exclusively. Since then, Mr. Bohm has assembled a highly skilled and hardworking team of attorneys, each with their own specialties.

What Type of Compensation Can You Recover in an Employment Lawsuit?
While it’s impossible to predict specific dollar amounts when discussing an employment lawsuit, it is possible to discuss the different types of compensation available to those who win judgments. For instance, a worker who has been wrongfully terminated might be reinstated to his or her position, and given back pay.
In other cases, an employee who was terminated as a result of discrimination and unable to find work might be awarded lost wages. This means that the terminated employee would be awarded his or her annual salary for each year of unemployment. If, for instance, the worker’s salary was $65,000 a year, and that individual was unable to find work for three years, he or she could be awarded $195,000 in lost wages.
Workers who experience mental and physical suffering as the result of harassment or discrimination, could be entitled to pain and suffering damages. This could include compensation for:
- Chronic Headaches
- Muscle Aches
- Other Symptoms
Finally, in rare cases, workers can recover punitive damages. These types of judgments often come in the form of high sum amounts. They are designed to punish the company and prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.
However, punitive damages are very difficult to achieve, as the worker must show that the company acted with fraud, malice or oppression.
Should You Contact an Employment Attorney?
If you’re a Yuba City resident who is dealing with an employment issue, and are unsure about whether you should contact an attorney, here are a few things to consider:
- Companies tend to take lawsuits more seriously when a good attorney represents the plaintiff.
- Employee attorneys will often take cases on a contingency basis, which means the worker doesn’t pay out-of-pocket legal fees.
In many cases, it’s well worth an employee’s time and effort to speak with an employment attorney to find out if they have a case.
A good attorney will bring an objective legal mind to your specific issue and keep your best interests in focus. Contact the Bohm Law Group to see how they can help.
