How much compensation can I receive with a discrimination lawsuit against a franchise who is asking me to settle out of court?

Through many months of rebuttals, my side of the story hasn’t changed but her side has. Now the company wants to know if there is anything I want to settle this out of court, such as my job back or a money settlement. I’m not sure what to do. I have no money for a lawyer to help me.

A: It’s not possible to give a useful answer with the limited amount of information that you have given. If they are offering to settle, then perhaps you can ask them for their offer first–then see if it’s worth the peace of mind to take it and move on with your life. Keep in mind that their first offer is probably going to be less favorable to you than their best offer–in other words, if you negotiate, you’ll probably do better. Good luck!
