What damages can someone recover for discrimination in the workplace?
I recently had a client who had been fired from her job because of illegal discrimination. Generally speaking, an employee can recover damages for job termination, which would mean economic damages, including lost wages both in the past and in the future. An employee can also recover damages for emotional trauma, for example, in the case of sexual harassment, racial harassment, harassment due to an illness or a disability. Also, the client or the employee, under some circumstances, is entitled to recovery of attorneys’ fees for having to hire an attorney in the first place to vindicate or protect their rights.
We at the Chavez Law Firm have a deep-rooted and broad knowledge base in this area of the law, this area of the law being labor and employment law. Moreover, we are passionate about helping our clients, one, protect their rights; two, keep their job, in the right circumstances; and three, get the just compensation that they deserve under the law. Please give us a call.
