Victims of employment discrimination may be entitled to back pay, front pay (projected earnings), costs of counseling, damages for defamation or emotional distress, and, in extreme cases, punitive damages against the employer. A lawsuit may also seek reinstatement if you were fired, advancement if you were passed over for promotion, job reassignment at equal or greater pay, or changes in company policy.  To learn more about a particular type of discrimination, please visit the links included above.
