In claims seeking lost wages and compensatory damages, documents showing Plaintiff’s earnings while working for any previous employers are not relevant.

Plaintiff’s earnings prior to her employment with Defendant are not relevant to this cause of action. Therefore, the temporal scope of the financial information relevant to Plaintiff’s case is limited to the time period during and after her employment with Defendant. Because Plaintiff was hired by Defendant in June of 2014, only Plaintiff’s earnings (and other financial information) between 2014 and the present are relevant and discoverable.
