In a workplace, all employees should be treated equally regardless of sex. Unfortunately, many employers discriminate against a specific sex. For example, some employers only hire women to be secretaries and receptionists or only hire men to be a part of IT support teams. Likewise, they might give a promotion to someone only based on their sex and not on their qualifications. Whether you experienced illegal firing or a denial of a promotion based on your gender, you likely have considered taking legal action. It is vital for you to contact a law firm with experience handling sex discrimination as soon as possible.
California Employment Attorneys Group is a law firm dedicated to helping all victimized employees. If you were a victim of wrongful firing, a demotion, or a denial of a promotion, you might be thinking of filing a lawsuit. As soon as you thought of the possibility of filing a lawsuit, you must have had the following questions:
- How much is a sex discrimination case worth?
- How much is the value of my case?
If you would like more information about the value of your case before you decide to file a lawsuit against your employer, you will need to contact California Employment Attorneys Group as soon as possible.
The following information is designed to answer some of the general questions you might be having. Although the sections below should be informative, you should not use the details provided to substitute a consultation or a second opinion from an experienced attorney. Only an attorney with the expertise in sex discrimination will be able to give you case-specific details. You should not hesitate to contact California Employment Attorneys Group as soon as possible to get specific information about your case value.
Past Settlements and Verdicts
If you have considered taking legal action against your employer, you have likely thought about the possible outcomes of a sex discrimination lawsuit. The value of a sex discrimination case depends on the specific details that make the case. Because of this, it is essential for all victims of gender discrimination in the workplace to seek legal assistance as soon as possible. Only an experienced attorney will be able to evaluate the details in a case and estimate the average settlement for a sex discrimination case with similar characteristics. Below, you will find a few examples of verdicts and settlement amount of a gender discrimination lawsuit:
- $700,000—a female employee was subjected to unequal pay, discrimination, and termination based on her sex.
- $500,000—a female employee was discriminated against by her employer because of her gender.
- $250,000—a female employee experienced retaliation, scrutiny, and denied requests for medical leave after she returned from her maternity leave.
- $31.2 million—a female pharmacist was a victim of gender discrimination and was eventually terminated.
- $806,000—a female firefighter experienced discrimination and retaliation based on her gender.
- $3.5 million—three female plaintiffs experienced discrimination based on their gender followed by retaliation after complaining about the issue.
As you can see, sex discrimination settlement amounts usually vary. You should not expect to receive an amount similar to the examples listed above—as your case might or might not have similar characteristics. Instead, you should seek legal assistance from California Employment Attorneys Group and have an attorney evaluate your case. Only an experienced attorney should give you an estimated case value and help you understand how your case is valued.
Compensation Available for Gender Discrimination
If you have thought about the payout that you might receive from your lawsuit, you likely have thought about the compensation that you might be eligible to receive. Because each case is subject to different types of compensation, you should not expect to receive the same compensation as any other case. As previously mentioned, the specific details of each case will affect the value of your case and the type of compensation you are eligible to receive. Below, you will find a list describing each type of compensation that you might be eligible to receive for your sex discrimination lawsuit against your employer:
- Lost wages—if you lost wages at any time because of the discrimination you experienced, you might be compensated. If you were terminated because of your gender or if you were demoted to a lower paying position because of your sex, you might be compensated for the wages that you lost.
- Emotional and mental distress—if you were affected emotionally and mentally because of the discrimination you experienced, you might be eligible to receive compensation. The level of emotional and mental distress you are suffering will be subject to evaluation from a professional.
- Punitive damages—if you can prove that the discrimination you experienced was willful, the lawsuit might result in punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed to punish the employer and ensure that the discrimination does not reoccur.
Additionally, the lawsuit might result in the employer being ordered to reinstate you, promote you, or give you a pay raise—depending on the specific details of the case. As you can see, there are a few types of compensation that might apply to your case. To find out more about the type and the amount you can receive, you must immediately contact California Employment Attorneys Group to get an evaluation of your case. Our skilled sex discrimination attorneys will review your case, explain the types of compensation you might be eligible to receive, and give you the average value of a sex discrimination lawsuit—before you decide to take legal action against your employer.
