What Damages Can I Claim in an Employment Law Case?
What your case is worth and what you can claim to depend on a wide range of factors, including the circumstances of your situation, the parties involved, and how your employer’s unfair actions affected your personal and professional life. While it is impossible to calculate the exact amount of your case value, our goal is to get you the maximum compensation possible for both your personal and professional losses. Damages you may be able to claim in an employment law case include.
- Lost wages, bonuses, or tips
- Lost future employment opportunities
- Job search expenses
- Emotional or mental trauma
- Personal inconveniences
- Loss of standard of living or joy of life
If our legal team can demonstrate that an employer, supervisor, or coworker intended to treat you unfairly or discriminate against you maliciously, you may also be entitled to receive punitive damages. For instance, if someone at work intentionally prevented you from advancing in your career or hurt your professional reputation, the judge may award you punitive damages. Our law firm can calculate all economic and non-economic losses to determine what your case is worth.
