An organization or the employer is liable to pay the ‘victim’ some compensation when he/she voids any employment law. The victim or the employee can claim compensation from the company when he or she faces any of the below situation:
When the employer doesn’t pay the lieu of notice payment up to five weeks, the employee can apply for the claim. Also when the employer terminates the ‘victim’ from his/her role without any prior notice or reason, the claim can be made for both economic loss and emotional disturbance.

When a company redistributes the same work and roles among different people there occur the situation of redundancy. Due to this redistribution or downsize of work, the wages of the other employees are also affected. In this case, the affected victim can raise a claim for both his wage and the difficulties he endured both physically and mentally.
When an employee is discriminated against another employee or co-worker, he/she can file a complaint and once the charges are proved, the accused/convicted has to pay the compensation amount which is quoted by the court, based on the loss caused to the victim.
The employer is liable to pay the compensation when accused of harassment at workplace. This compensation is also quoted by the court based on the suffering the victim endured both physically and mentally. The harassment may be verbal, physical or sexual.
These claim amounts are prefixed and are also decided by the court depending on the impact. For instance, a company can be liable to pay a fine of $18,000 for discriminating its employees through social media.
