What compensation can one expect
following an unlawful termination?
Monetary compensation in civil claims and lawsuits serves to make victims whole after suffering harm, while also ensuring that those responsible for wrongdoing are held accountable. After an illegal termination, you may be eligible to claim for:
Lost Wages: This refers to the back pay and benefits the employee would have received had they not been wrongfully terminated. It could include bonuses, commissions, and any other form of compensation.
Front Pay: This is the compensation for the loss of future wages and benefits, especially if reinstatement is not feasible.
Loss of Pension Benefits: If the termination affected the employee's pension or retirement benefits, they might be compensated for that loss.
Emotional Distress: Wrongfully terminated employees can experience significant mental anguish, stress, and other psychological effects.
Damage to Reputation: If the wrongful termination led to the employee's professional reputation being tarnished, they might be entitled to damages.
Punitive Damages: In cases where the employer's conduct was particularly malicious or reckless, courts might award punitive damages to punish the employer and deter similar behavior in the future.
Job Search and Relocation Costs: If the terminated employee incurred expenses while searching for a new job or had to relocate due to the termination, they might be reimbursed for those expenses.
Legal Fees and Costs: If the employee hires an attorney to represent them in a wrongful termination lawsuit, they might be able to recover the attorney's fees and other legal costs.
Interest: Depending on jurisdiction, the employee might also be awarded interest on the damages from the date of termination to the date of judgment.
Reinstatement: In some cases, especially in public sector jobs or union environments, the court or tribunal might order that the employee be reinstated to their former position in addition to, or in lieu of, monetary damages.
Benefit Loss: This includes any health insurance, life insurance, stock options, or other fringe benefits that were lost due to the wrongful termination.
Training and Education Costs: If the employee had to undergo additional training or education to find a new job after wrongful termination, they might be entitled to recover those costs.
