Chula Vista Workers Deserve the Best Representation Possible
Incorporated in 1911, Chula Vista has grown exponentially over the years. It is currently estimated the city has a population of more than 267,000 residents. It goes without saying that a lot of hard working people live there. The town is home to such attractions as Aquatica San Diego, and Living Coast Discovery Center. Top employers in town include: Sweetwater Union High School District, United Technologies Aerospace Systems, Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, and 24 Hour Fitness.
While most employers take care to follow the laws designed to protect workers’ rights, this isn’t always the case. When an employee’s rights are violated, regardless of whether the company is big or small, it makes sense to discuss the issue with a good attorney.

What Kind of Compensation Can a Worker Expect in an Employment Lawsuit?
While no lawyer can predict a specific dollar amount or verdict when it comes to a pending lawsuit, it is possible to discuss the types of compensation that can be sought.

Otherwise, keep reading to learn more about the different compensation available to workers.
In cases where an employee has experienced discrimination and not been properly paid as a result, the court might order the company to issue back pay. Depending on how the long the violation was occurring, back pay can add up significantly.
This type of award is ordered in cases where discrimination or harassment occurred, and the employee was unable to find work as a result. Lost wages could be ordered at the employee’s usual annual salary for the amount of time he or she was unable to find work. If the salary amount was $50,000, and the amount of time was three years, the amount of lost wages could be $150,000.
Pain and Suffering
This type of award could be ordered in cases where the employee suffers as a result of the workplace violation. Pain and suffering can include:
- Panic Attacks
- Other Ailments
Though these types of awards are rare, they can result in high-sum amounts. The plaintiff must show the company acted with fraud, malice, or oppression.
