Wisconsin has new legislation eliminating the possibility of compensatory and punitive damages in discrimination cases, including genetic testing. A complainant will be allowed to receive back wages, costs and attorney fees, but will not have those other types of remedies available. This applies to all cases in which a final decision has not been rendered and does not restrict employees from filing Federal claims when relevant.
