Clients often ask what type of damages are available to me for a wrongful termination or a discrimination claim. Courts determine damages for wrongful termination on a case by case basis but essentially, the damages include lost wages or future wages and an additional emotional pain and suffering.

Punitive damages are also available in wrongful termination cases and are awarded in some cases. Punitive damages are used to punish the employer and deter others from behaving in the same way. These damages are awarded in the most extreme of circumstances. Schedule an appointment with Rochester employment attorney Michelle Cimino today to find out if you are eligible for punitive damages.
