Chicago-Area Employment Discrimination Lawyers
Employment Discrimination and Wrongful Termination Lawyers
Our Chicagoland Illinois employment discrimination lawyers handle wrongful termination lawsuits arising out of employment discrimination. If an employee is fired for a protected characteristic—such as race, religion, sex, age, or disability, the employee may have a wrongful termination lawsuit.
If an employee is retaliated against for making a discrimination complaint, the employee may have a retaliation claim even if the underlying discrimination was not illegal.
If you are wrongfully terminated, it is important that you contact an employment lawyer to avoid waiving the right to bring your lawsuit. All employment lawsuits have a time limitation in which you must either make an appropriate complaint with a governmental agency (for example the EEOC) or to file a lawsuit. Some of the deadlines to file wrongful termination claim are very short.
