What Can a Worker Recover in an Employment Lawsuit?
While it’s impossible to put a dollar amount on a pending legal claim, it’s possible to discuss the different types of compensation a worker can seek.
For instance, a worker could be entitled to recovery of back pay as well as reinstatement of employment.
In some cases, lost wages might be awarded. If this happens, the worker could be granted the annual salary amount for each year he or she is unable to find work. Take for example a worker making $45,000 a year who is wrongfully terminated. If that worker were unable to find employment for two years as a result of the termination, he or she might be awarded $90,000.
Employees who suffer physical or mental ailments as the result of harassment, discrimination or wrongful termination could be awarded compensation for pain and suffering. This could include the following:
- Muscle Spasms
- Stomach Issues
In rare cases, punitive damages could be awarded. These are often high-sum amounts designed to punish the employer and prevent the discrimination or harassment from happening again. Punitive damages are difficult to obtain because the plaintiff must show that the employer acted with malice, fraud, or oppression.
If you believe you might be entitled to punitive damages, or other compensation, contact the Bohm Law Group to see how we can help.
Should You Contact a Lawyer?
If you’re considering filing a claim against an employer, and are considering doing so without legal representation, first consider the following:
- Most employers will have a lawyer of their own (possibly multiple lawyers).
- Employers tend to take a case more seriously when a plaintiff is properly represented.
- Employment attorneys often work on contingency, which means the client doesn’t pay out-of -pocket expenses.
The point of sharing this information is to show that it could well be a worker’s time and effort to discuss his or her case with an employment attorney.
Ultimately, there is little to lose by scheduling a consultation, but plenty to lose by going it alone. If you’ve been experienced harassment, discrimination, or some other workplace violation, contact the Bohm Law Group to explore your options.
