This software training module employs video to help the practitioner understand a 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 use whether representing the agency or a complainant. This session uses 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.
