Whether you can recover damages and in what amount depends on many factors including your wage history, the size of your employer, the nature of your work and the nature of the discrimination. Each case is distinct and requires it’s own evaluation.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin.
