### What are commonly used components when measuring economic damages in a wrongful discharge case? Describe each component and explain why it should be used in the damage calculation. -- The components include: Lost Wages: This includes all wages that would have been paid to the employee, including salary, bonuses, reimbursed expenses, and all other forms of direct and indirect compensation. This is used in the calculation because it is what the employee is directly out - on a wrongful basis. Lost tax payments that the employer would have paid: This includes FICA tax payments that the employer would have paid on behalf of the employee, and is included because it is the tax portion of the lost wages. Lost health insurance and other benefit payments that the employer would have paid: Includes all employee health and medical benefits, and other employee benefits, and is included because it is treated in the same way that a lost wage is treated by the courts in a wrongful discharge case. 12-15. What are the components of measuring the economic damages from the loss of household services? -- This applies typically when a person is injured or killed and can no longer perform household services. The components of measurement include examining what the amount of services were that the person contributed to the household before sustaining the injury or being killed. It involves an examination of their exact role and duties in the household. The second measurement is to determine how much of those same services the person can provide after the loss. This is applicable to those that have suffered injury. The final measurement is to then determine what the value is, of the services that were lost, or that can no longer be performed by the individual. 13-5. For what purposes do computer forensic specialists analyze electronic data? -- The analysis of data is performed to ensure that all forms of electronic evidence contained on the specific device being analyzed is preserved, as part of the discovery process in an investigation. Computer forensics has four main parts, which include identification, preservation, extraction, and the presentation of electronic data. By analyzing the data, the forensic examiner is then able to identify specific evidence and data from the electronic means used to analyze the electronic data. 13-7. In what ways can electronic evidence be destroyed so that it is no longer admissible in court? Explain your answer. -- People can go to all different types of extremes to destroy evidence, making it impossible to be used in court. With electronic evidence, computers are very susceptible to magnetic fields. There have been cases where the suspects have purposely exposed the computer or electronic device to a highly magnetic field, to destroy the data. Others have taken the computer or device, and if it was portable enough, completely slammed it against a concrete floor or other surface, to make the computer and data completely unreadable.
