Michigan/Grand Blanc Employment Law Attorney
Helping Employees Assert Their Rights at Work
Regardless of seniority or role in a company, all employees are protected by certain laws that strive to create fair and equal working conditions. These laws protect workers against discrimination and sexual harassment, rights to minimum wage and overtime, as well as other importing aspects that can affect one’s employment. When violations of any of these rights occur, employees can hold their employers accountable for fair and just compensation.
At Justice Litigation Attorneys, it’s our focus to help employees assert their rights and seek compensation when their rights are violated at work. We can help clients with claims involving matters such as:
- Family and Medical Leave Act
- Sexual Harassment
- Wage & Hour Violations

What Can I Gain from an Employment Lawsuit?
If you’re considering a lawsuit against your employer, you are no doubt weight the risks and benefits of pursuing legal action. It’s important to understand what you can specifically gain from a successful lawsuit by speaking with our employment law attorney in Michigan/Grand Blanc directly.
That said, there are several broad categories of what you can get out of winning your lawsuit:
- Lost Wages and Benefits: This is the most basic and common type of damage awarded to plaintiffs. Its value is determined by what you were paid in income and benefits by your employer and what you lost as a result of an employment law violation.
- Attorney’s Fees and Costs: An attorney isn’t free if you’re suing your employer, so a successful lawsuit that awards attorney’s fees and costs to you can help you afford your attorney by compelling the other party to pay for their assistance. This can help you maximize what you gain from other damages that fees would otherwise cut into.
- Non-Economic Damages: In cases involving issues like sexual harassment and discrimination, emotional distress and mental suffering can be accounted for in damage payouts. These are considered non-economic damages because no monetary value can be directly calculated for the harm caused.
- Punitive Damages: When fraud or malice play integral roles in the employment law violations, a judge may be inclined to award punitive damages. As the name suggests, these damages are intended to punish your employer for their actions when they arise to such levels.
