We recognize what is at stake in these cases for both the employer and the employee and we use this knowledge to secure the best possible outcome.

A Sample Of The Types Of Cases We Have Litigated

Illinois is an at-will employment state, meaning that an employer has the right to fire an employee at any time for any reason, as long as it is not illegal. This gives employers broad power when making decisions about promotions, pay increases and benefits. However, the line between perceived unfair treatment and discrimination is not always clear. Unfair treatment does not necessarily constitute discrimination.

Types of workplace discrimination that often result in litigation include:

  • Gender or sexual orientation
  • Race or national origin
  • Religious belief
  • Pregnancy
  • Disability
  • Age
