Wrongful Termination Damages
Most employees enter an “at-will” contract with their employers. That means their employers can fire them for any reason, even if it’s absurd. However, wrongful termination can still occur in this state. Learn more about the available wrongful termination damages in New York.

Clients often ask what type of damages are available for a wrongful termination or a discrimination claim. I let my clients know that courts determine wrongful termination damages 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.
