What Damages Can Be Recovered in an Employment Law Case?
The damages that are available generally in an employment discrimination
lawsuit include the employee’s lost wages, the value of the lost
benefits and attorney’s fees. In addition, reinstatement to the
employee’s position may also be an option. Some statutes enable
an employee to recover for his or her pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment
of life, and other elements of compensatory damage. Some Federal laws,
including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, permit an employee
to recover punitive damages for the employer’s unlawful misconduct.
Amounts of damages vary widely from case to case and are very dependent
on the facts of each particular case. However, as a general rule of thumb,
punitive damages are awarded more frequently in
retaliation and harassment cases then they are in discrimination cases.

Employer misconduct can damage more than your paycheck. It can severely
affect nearly every aspect of your life. But taking action can be intimidating.
People often tell us that they fear that things might get worse if they
take action. The opposite is true. Things usually get worse when you don’t
take action. Put an end to employer misconduct, not only for yourself,
but for others in the future as well.
People also worry about how much it will cost to hire a lawyer, pay the
court fees and other expenses involved. That is why we accept employment
law cases on a contingency fee basis. That means that we take care of
all of the court expenses and do not charge you our fee unless we obtain
a settlement or judgment in your favor. We have the experience and confidence
to work this way to take the burden off of you. Let us help you put an
end to the nightmare that your employer has put you through.
