Damages Available for Retaliation and Whistleblowing Claims
How much you might collect if you win a retaliation or whistleblowing case depends on the basis and strength of your claims. For most wrongful termination cases, a winning employee can ask for:
back pay: wages and benefits you lost as a result of being wrongfully fired
reinstatement or front pay: you can ask the court to give you back your job or, if that’s not feasible, to award you the wages you will lose going forward until you find a new job
out-of-pocket losses: any expenses you had to pay as a result of being fired, such as the cost of searching for a new job, and attorneys’ fees and court costs.
