The provisions now added to the Wisconsin Fair Employment Act ("WFEA" or "the Act") will give a complainant or the Department of Workforce Development ("DWD") the ability to pursue compensatory and punitive damages, previously not authorized under the Act, upon a finding of job discrimination by an administrative hearing.
