PPP8, whistleblower corrective action

If I prevail on a claim that an agency violated section 2302(b)(8), what type of corrective action may MSPB order? 

If an appellant prevails on a 2302(b)(8) whistleblower claim, MSPB may, depending on the circumstances, order:  

(1) that the agency place the individual in the position the individual would have been in had the prohibited personnel practice not occurred; (2) back pay and related benefits; (3) medical costs incurred; (4) travel expenses; (5) any other reasonable and foreseeable consequential damages; and (6) attorney fees and costs.  5 U.S.C. § 1221(g).
