Video Transcript:
Damages in gender discrimination cases are assessed in much the same way damages are assessed in race discrimination cases or age discrimination cases. You get your lost pay, so if you're demoted and you prove that you've been discriminated against because of your gender, you get the difference between what you should have been paid and the pay you were demoted to. You're terminated and you prove that you've discriminated against because of your gender, you get a stream of lost income going into the future, not indefinitely but up until you get a job, for a reasonable period of time. You're also entitled to emotional injuries and other types of injuries such as, perhaps, in certain instances punitive damages and attorney's fees. My name is Walker Harman. I'm the managing attorney of the Harman Firm. If you believe you've been the victim of illegal employment discrimination, we are eager to speak with you. Please give us a call.
