If your employer has broken your employment contract, you may have the right to collect financial compensation or "damages." Damages are intended to compensate you for the financial losses caused by the contract breach. There are several reasons why you need a lawyer to recover damages. A lawyer can evaluate your case and let you know what you can expect to collect in damages.
Unfortunately, there is a strict limit to the financial compensation you can win in a breach of contract case. However, depending on the circumstances of your cases, you may also be able to file a discrimination or wrongful termination lawsuit, which can help further cover money you may have lost as a result of the breach of contract.
The specific types of damages you are entitled to receive will depend upon your specific circumstances.
