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.
