Age Discrimination At Work to Employment Litigation
Employment discrimination lawsuits involve legal actions taken by individuals who believe they have been unfairly treated in the workplace due to their race, gender, age, disability, or other protected characteristics. CFES has expert economists who can play a crucial role in bolstering the plaintiff’s case. By analyzing extensive data and labor market trends, our economists can quantify the extent of the discrimination and its impact on the individual’s career and earnings.
Economists at the Center for Forensic Economic Studies have extensive experience analyzing liability issues arising in claims of disparate impact in labor and employment matters.
The Center has been called on to provide analysis in terminations-for-cause actions and hiring, promotion and compensation cases. Center statisticians have testified in hundreds of cases for both plaintiffs and defendants and have also been retained as court-appointed experts.
In addition to direct litigation support, Center economists offer employment-compliance audits that help employers identify potential problem areas prior to reductions-in-force (RIFs).
Wrongful Termination Lawsuit
CFES also addresses the potential for future losses and damages, providing a clear and comprehensive economic evaluation for cases like wrongful termination. Expert economist witnesses can effectively communicate their findings to the court, presenting complex economic concepts in a manner that is easily understandable and compelling. Our testimony can significantly strengthen the plaintiff’s position, lending credibility to the claim and supporting the pursuit of justice and fair compensation for the employment litigation.”
