When you file an employment law claim against your employer for wrongdoing or misconduct, you may be able to recover a variety of damages as compensation.

Compensatory damages for employment law claims can include:

  • Back pay and lost wages if you were wrongfully terminated or owed wages by your employer
  • Bonuses or benefits that you lost
  • Emotional distress
  • Reinstatement of your position
  • Attorney fees
  • Punitive damages, if your employer's actions were egregious
