Damages in employment claims

Workers who win their lawsuit may receive two kinds of compensation.

Compensatory damages cover the financial and emotional losses the worker suffered because of the employment dispute. Punitive damages aim to punish an employer for malicious or egregious wrongdoing.

Common types of damages awarded by California courts include:

  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of professional reputation

Calculating the exact amount you are likely to receive is not possible. An experienced employment lawyer, however, can evaluate your claim and give you a realistic idea of what damages to expect. McCormack Law Firm will strive to get you the maximum compensation in your case.

If you miss any important deadlines, you could lose your right to pursue compensation.

How long do I have to file an employment claim?

If you are considering taking legal action against an employer, you should be aware of the statute of limitations for your claim. A statute of limitations is a deadline for filing a lawsuit.

In California, the statute of limitations varies according to the type of employment dispute. For example, there is a two-year statute of limitations for wrongful termination claims based on public policy. Employees seeking to bring a discrimination claim typically have three years to get a Right to Sue letter from the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing.

An employment attorney can help you determine which time limits apply to your case and whether there are any exceptions. It is a good idea to discuss your employment dispute with a lawyer as soon as possible. If you miss any important deadlines, you could lose your right to pursue compensation.

Marin County class actions

When a group of workers has experienced the same labor violations, it sometimes makes sense to take collective legal action instead of filing individual lawsuits. Class action lawsuits are a useful tool when an employer has engaged in a pattern of misconduct.

Common types of class action lawsuits include misclassification of independent contractors, off-the-clock work, unpaid wages, discrimination and other labor violations. A lead plaintiff represents a larger group of workers, known as class members.

If the lawsuit is successful, the settlement is divided among the class members. Additionally, class actions often force employers to stop their illegal practices and introduce better workplace policies.

McCormack Law Firm can help you determine whether a class action lawsuit would be an effective option to resolve your employment dispute. We can also prepare you for what to expect if you decide to act as a lead plaintiff.
