Wrongful Termination, Laws and Definition | Fitapelli &  Schaffer

There are a number of forms of monetary damages you can receive from taking legal action against a former employer, if your case is successful. In cases of wrongful termination, your legal remedies could include monetary damages from lost wages, emotional pain and suffering, punitive damages and legal fees. In addition, you may even be offered your job back. It is advisable to seek the advice of New York lawyers, such as Fitapelli & Schaffer, LLP, who are experienced in employment or wrongful termination law. These New York lawyers offer a free initial consultation to help determine if you have a case against your employer. 

Lost Wages
There is a chance you could receive both back pay and front pay if you are successful against your employer. Back pay may equal the amount of money you should have been paid from the time you start the case until trial. Front pay may include all of the pay you could have received from termination until you receive a new job. If your new job pays you less money, you may also be entitled to this pay differential. 

Lost Benefits
In addition to money damages, you may be entitled to the value of your lost benefits, such as health insurance, life insurance, disability insurance, 401k contributions and pension.

Non-Monetary Damages 
If the court rules in favor of your wrongful termination law suit, you could receive non-monetary damages. This could include being reinstated to your former position or the company being forced to change their policies.
