This CD-ROM training module employs extensive video to help the practitioner understand this complex area of federal employment law. Damages and remedies law experts Gilbert and Hadley discuss the basic outline of a discrimination victim’s entitlement to compensatory damages, and give practice tips for the practitioner to utilize whether representing the agency or a complainant. This session uses the real life experiences of the presenters in a classroom setting. They provide a framework for assessing damages exposure and for developing a strategy to either defend against or pursue those claims through the EEO process. Topics covered include: remedies in addition to money damages, injunctive relief, back pay, front pay, and compensatory damages; proof of damages and proof of causation, the eggshell complainant, and handling multiple causes of emotional harm.
