(a) On finding that a respondent engaged in an unlawful employment practice under
Section 437.204 as alleged in a complaint, a court may:
(1) prohibit by injunction the respondent from engaging in an unlawful employment
practice under Section 437.204; and
(2) order additional equitable relief as may be appropriate.
(b) Additional equitable relief may include:
(1) hiring or reinstating with or without back pay;
(2) upgrading an employee with or without pay; and
(3) paying court costs.
(c) Liability under a back pay award may not accrue for a date more than two years
before the date a complaint is filed with the commission. Interim earnings, workers' compensation benefits, and unemployment compensation
benefits received operate to reduce the back pay otherwise allowable.
