Thanks for your patience. Whilst technically there is nothing stopping you from claiming for stigma damages when you are still employed by the employer, the whole point of making such a claim is that you are prevented from working in the same role or industry as a result of their treatment. As you are still employed and have not been unsuccessfully trying to get a new job as a result of such stigma, it would be rather difficult to justify why you should be awarded damages for stigma at this stage. Generally, you need to be able to show that there has been stigma against your name because of the detrimental treatment and it has caused you significant difficulties in getting a new job. That is why making such a claim now would likely be premature.
