  • 1. What is the reasonable measure of lost wages for a worker who is terminated because of illegal discrimination?

Expert Witness Response E-002850

I understand the nature of the case, and can comment on wages lost as a result of illegal discrimination. I would analyze factors including her previous salary, along with any other factors that would determine how much she should have been receiving. I am an economist, and I have performed thousands of lost earning calculations, which have been utilized in courts around the United States. I have provided deposition and trial testimonies in more than 125 instances over a period of fourteen years of practice.

Expert Witness Response E-002854

I am familiar with the economics of discrimination, and currently continue to teach, publish, and consult on such matters. By examining the different monetary factors in play, I could reasonably project her lost wages. I believe I am in a position to comment on the wages lost by the analyst due to discriminatory termination. I have reviewed numerous discrimination cases over the years and have testified on matters relating to lost income approximately twenty-five times. Also, I am an active professor in economics.
