When it comes to workplace retaliation lawsuit settlements, we cannot unfortunately share an exact number or range. Because each case is going to be different based on individual circumstances and the parties involved, the potential amount of a settlement can vary greatly.
Keep in mind that before you can pursue a lawsuit in court, you do have to file a charge with the Equal Opportunity Commission (EEOC). They handle a range of different charges including workplace retaliation. Once they have investigated your charge, you will be sent a right to sue letter.
You can also request a right to sue letter before the investigation is completed if 180 days have passed. This letter is what gives you the right to sue.
While we cannot provide a specific range or number of the potential settlement amount you might expect, we can look at what sort of damages might be factored into a workplace retaliation settlement.
Damages are what you will be seeking should you move forward with a lawsuit against your employer. Some of these damages will include:
