EMPLOYEE LAWSUIT VALUES

The value of an employment case depends on what your lost wages are, whether you can claim emotional distress, how badly you suffered, whether the conduct was done by persons who bind the company for punitive damages, whether you are credible, whether there are witnesses or documents that support your claims, how able your employer is to pay, who represents your employer, who your attorney is, whether your type of case requires the employer to pay your attorney fees if you win, what county your case is filed in, whether you signed a binding arbitration agreement, and a variety of other factors. Karl Gerber has handled close to 1,650 employment cases and can advise you of the value of your case. Call him at 310-842-8600 to speak to a lawyer whose opinion matters, and opposing counsel will respect.

Every case is valued differently. Sexual harassment involving verbal comments can be valued differently than sexual harassment involving physical conduct. Sexual harassment that is not investigated may be valued different than co-worker sexual harassment that is investigated and virtually stops after a complaint of sexual harassment. Verbal sexual harassment that occurs daily, over a long period of time, may be valued differently than a case in which somebody was physically sexually harassed twice with their hands being touched and once with a shoulder touch.

Overtime claims that are hard to prove may be valued differently than overtime an employee is obviously owed because time records show they worked, but they were not paid. Overtime cases involving hourly employees are often easier to win than overtime cases involving mis-classification. Overtime cases in which somebody is not paid enough to be exempt are easier to win than overtime cases in which somebody is paid a lot such as $100,000, but does not really seem to be a manager.

The value of a wrongful termination case may increase if the employer's witnesses are obvious liars. Wrongful termination cases in which there is documentation to support the claim may be easier to win. Wrongful termination cases in which the employee found a job quickly may not be worth as much. Wrongful termination cases where the employer's conduct was exceedingly bad and done by high level employees may warrant punitive damages. Wrongful termination cases in which the employee was being forced to to something illegal may have more appeal if the employee refused.
