Case Study - Wrongful Termination - Plaintiff

Issue at Dispute - Employment lawsuit in Federal court, Norther District of Illinois. The case involved a female employee, working in a majority-male occupation and workplace, who alleged harassment and discrimination while at work, then experienced retaliation from her superiors after filing a discrimination charge with the EEOC. As a result, she was denied training, promotional opportunities, and was subsequently constructively discharged. After the cesation of her employment with the defendant, she has had severely limited job opportunities as she lives in a smaller city with little access to comparable employment and has since been been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Our Role - We were hired by the plaintiff's attorneys to evaluate lost back and front pay from the time of the discrimination through her remaining expected tenure had she not been constructively discharged. We also evaluated her post-employment earnings, job search, and earnings potential. Damages included lost earnings, health insurance benefits, and retirement benefits. The losses were detailed for both the lost promotional opportunities and the termination of her employment.
