It’s no longer just about tangible damages like lost wages. More and more juries are focusing on emotional damages, which can include embarrassment, anxiety, loss of sleep due to the harassment or discrimination. This element makes handling these cases more complicated than it used to be, as emotional distress and damages are by nature more nuanced and oftentimes rely on the testimony of friends, family, and therapists.
Social media movements like the #MeToo movement have certainly brought greater attention to workplace harassment and discrimination. Social media makes it easier than ever for claimants to publicize their stories, whether true or not. Social media also creates a reality where a company’s reputation can be damaged more quickly than ever before, oftentimes without that company having the opportunity to defend itself. This is one of the reasons that working with an employment discrimination attorney is of utmost importance. The faster you as the employer can get in front of these situations, the better.
