In some cases, you might also be entitled to damages for “pain and suffering,” for the emotional and physical harm caused by your employer’s actions. Punitive damages, intended to punish your employer for particularly egregious misconduct, may also be available.
And, in some whistleblower cases, you might be eligible for a fee or bounty for protecting the public from wrongdoing. (This might be a set amount per violation, a percentage of the total sanction against the employer, or some other amount determined by the statute or the court.)
Your lawyer can explain how much you might expect to win in your case.
