Employment lawyer Chicago, ILIssues can arise in the workplace and they can normally be resolved fairly quickly. However, other matters may require the assistance of a qualified and experienced lawyer that you can rely on for personalized assistance. Knowing when it is time to talk to a lawyer regarding legal problems that are affecting you can be tricky. However, it is always a good idea to consult a lawyer when you are no longer sure what is the right decision or if you need more in-depth legal guidance to help you come to a resolution. You can see an employment lawyer for the following types of cases. 


All employees deserve to be treated equally and fairly. Discrimination against individuals on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, gender, religion, age or disability is unlawful and a violation of civil rights. Examples of discrimination can include denial of a promotion, refusal to provide reasonable accommodations, or reduced wages or salary. If you believe that you have been discriminated against by a coworker, manager or supervisor, you should take action right away. It should not be tolerated at all. Discuss your case with a lawyer and they can help you find out what kind of compensation that you can be entitled to. 

Workers’ Compensation

Workers who have suffered a qualifying injury or illness while on the job are eligible to file a workers compensation claim so that they can recover benefits for their expenses. Filing a workers compensation claim can be a difficult process that can be confusing to understand, and it can come with many hurdles. When an employer attempts to prevent you from filing a claim or retaliates against you, you can turn to an employment lawyer for legal assistance. A skilled employment lawyer can help you submit your application and make sure that you receive access to the benefits that you are entitled to get. 

Whistleblower Retaliation 

Whistleblowers have special rights that grant them protection against any kind of consequences for engaging in whistleblower activity. A whistleblower is any individual who submits an anonymous complaint about illegal activity committed by a company or government entity. Employers are not allowed to retaliate against an employee if they discover that they have previously been a whistleblower. 

Sexual Harassment 

A sexual harassment claim should always be taken seriously and it should never be tolerated in the workplace. Actions that qualify as sexual harassment include unwanted comments, inappropriate touching, and showing photos that are sexual in nature without consent. If you have been a victim of sexual harassment, do not wait to contact a lawyer so that they will be able to tell you what actions you can take and hold the person responsible accountable for their behavior.
