What damages can I recover from my employer if I sue for discrimination?

I’m often asked by employees what kind of damages they can recover and whether it’s worthwhile to pursue a discrimination lawsuit. You should be aware that if you file a discrimination lawsuit and you are successful, you can be awarded compensatory damages which will include damages that you have for things that you’ve expended or losses that you’ve incurred as well as for your emotional distress, anxiety, humiliation – all the kinds of things that come with losing a job. In addition, you may be awarded your lost wages, potentially future lost wages and the court can order the other side to pay your attorney’s fees and costs.

If you require strong legal representation for matters of employment law, personal injury, real estate, or criminal defense, contact an experienced attorney at the Vigilante Law Firm, P.C. today to schedule an initial consultation.
