Employment Discrimination Lawsuits in Chicago
Attorneys Serving Clients Throughout Chicago, IL
At The Prinz Law Firm, we focus a large part of our practice on discrimination
in employment and
wrongful termination claims. As you may or may not know, employers are prohibited from using any protected
classes as a basis for an employment decision. An employer that terminates
an employee for reporting or opposing a discriminatory act may also be
liable for wrongful termination.
This is true regardless of whether the employee makes a report to Human
Resources, his/her supervisor, an attorney, the United States Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission, the Illinois Department of Human Rights, the Cook
County Human Rights Commission, or any other state or administrative agency.
Working to Prevent Employment Discrimination
Employment disputes can often be complicated and difficult, requiring the
assistance of a knowledgeable Chicago employment law attorney. It can
be devastating to be wrongly discharged after you have dedicated yourself
completely to your profession.
Our caring attorneys understand the emotional trauma that an employment
dispute can entail. We advise clients on how to minimize the financial
and emotional costs and work to identify long term resolutions. There
are certain protections which exist to prevent employment discrimination
on special cases.
Protected classes include the following:
- National origin
- Marital status
- Sexual orientation
- Military service
Filing Successful Discrimination Claims
Discrimination claims can often be especially complex because it can be
difficult to discern whether an employer's decision to fire, not hire,
or not promote is based on the employee's status as a protected class.
An employment attorney should examine all aspects of an employee's
employment and performance before advising a client on the merits of a claim.
If you have been fired for complaining about any of these common types
of discrimination, please reach out to us to consult with a Chicago employment
discrimination attorney from The Prinz Law Firm.
