Filing an Employment Lawsuit

When you are experiencing workplace harassment, discrimination or wage violations, it can often be challenging to come forward and speak up. If your rights have been violated, you may be able to file an employment lawsuit against your employer to recover damages.

You can pursue compensation for lost wages, benefits and emotional distress. The exact amount you receive depends on the details of your case. In certain circumstances, you may be eligible for punitive damages. Courts may award punitive damages in serious cases that involve malicious or willful wrongdoing on your employer’s part.

There are many steps in the legal process, from thoroughly investigating a claim and gathering evidence to negotiating settlements and fighting a case in court. A skilled employment lawyer can handle your lawsuit from start to finish, getting you the compensation you deserve.

My parents were heavily involved in community organizing. Seeing neighbors and friends’ parents struggle in the workplace gave me a sense of purpose that I wanted to help others. Many employees feel helpless and powerless in the workplace, and helping them vindicate their rights is the right thing to do.
