While most companies follow the laws that protect workers’ rights, sometimes companies fall short of their obligations. In worst-case scenarios, companies can egregiously violate the rights of employees, which effects not only the worker, but the worker’s family as well. When this happens, a good employment attorney can be vital in helping the worker receive just compensation.

Compensation for Workplace Violations
While it’s impossible to predict the outcome of any legal action, it is possible to discuss the general types of compensation available to workers whose rights are violated. Continue reading to learn a little about these categories. For more information on the settlements and awards the Bohm Group has secured on behalf of its clients, visit the results page.
Sometimes, because of discrimination or some other issue, an employee is denied rightful wages. A court might order an employer to issue a worker back pay, an amount that can add up significantly depending on how long the discrimination has taken place.
If an employee is wrongfully terminated and unable to find work as a result, he or she might be able to recover lost wages. If, for instance, a wrongfully terminated employee was making an annual salary of $50,000, and unable to find work for three years, he or she might be able to recover three years’ worth of the salary amount — in this case $150,000.
Pain and Suffering
A worker who experiences any of the following as a result of harassment or discrimination could be entitled to pain and suffering damages:
- Muscle Spasms
- Other Ailments
Though these types of awards are rare, they often result in high-sum amounts and make headlines. In order to obtain punitive damages, the plaintiff must show the employer acted with malice, fraud or oppression.
