Types of Damages Available in an Employment Law Case
When an employer breaches an employee’s rights and the employee suffers harm as a result, the employee deserves to be compensated. By filing an employment complaint, you can help to protect other workers from being victims of the same harm that you’ve experienced, as well as seek actual monetary damages for your losses. Depending on the details of your case, a complaint against an employer could yield financial remedy in the form of compensation for lost wages, back pay or front pay, lost benefits, attorneys’ fees and legal costs, emotional/psychological distress, and punitive damages. Sometimes, remedies like reinstatement to your original position may also be available.
