Valuing Damages in Employment Cases
Rhonda Anderson Marks                       11
The typical plaintiff in an employment discrimina-
tion case is absolutely, unshakably certain of some-
thing: that his or her case is worth a fortune in dam-
ages. This, of course, is rarely the case. But how do

step is to make sure that you really know what the
case is worth and the second is to make sure that the
client understands how you arrived at your num-
bers. In this article, employment litigator Rhonda
Anderson Marks explains how to calculate damages
in employment discrimination cases, and how to
keep the client's expectations down to earth.

investigation when the need arises, and you need to
know how to help the client to preserve the attorney-
client and work product privileges. In this article,
Herv6 Gouraige and Elisabeth Riedmueller explain
how to do both.
