According to US census data, Oakland has a population of more than 400,000 residents — the eighth largest city in California, and the fifth busiest port in the country. Top employers in town include Kaiser Permanente, Southwest Airlines, United Parcel Service and Bay Area Rapid Transit. It goes without saying that Oakland is home to many hardworking people.
While most of us have been instilled with a respect for the companies that create jobs, there are times when businesses and employers flaunt laws designed to protect worker rights. When this happens, it’s recommended a worker contact a good employment attorney.

Types of Compensation Workers Might Be Entitled To
While it’s impossible to predict what an employee might win in a discrimination or harassment lawsuit, it is possible to discuss the different types of compensation available.
This type of award is granted in cases where discrimination or other workplace violation led to an employee being denied rightful wages. This is sometimes seen in leave of absence cases.
This type of compensation can be illustrated with a hypothetical example. Imagine an employee who is making $45,000 annual salary when he or she is wrongfully terminated. After termination, this employee is unable to find work for three years. If awarded lost wages, this employee might collect the salary amount for each year without work. In this case, the amount would total $135,00.
Pain and Suffering
An employee who experiences harassment or discrimination at work might also experience pain and suffering, and be entitled to compensation. Pain and suffering could include any of the following:
- Panic Attacks
- Muscle Pain
- Other Ailments
