According to salary.com, the median salary for a school bus driver is $31,604. So how much is a sexual harassment case that leads to the termination of a female bus driver worth? Many defense attorneys will argue for the couple months’ salary that she was off of work. Some employment defense attorneys will say, no more than a year. Because most settlements are confidential, meaning that our employment discrimination attorneys cannot even talk about cases that we settle, it is typically hard to provide examples of what cases are worth. Now, keep in mind that every case is different based on a multitude of factors, but here is a good sexual harassment settlement example. That school bus driver was subjected to lewd comments and sexual advances by her supervisor, who once exposed himself in a storage room. Her case just settled for $190,000 – over six times her salary.
