Understanding Wrongful Termination
When you are subject to unlawful retaliation because you participated in an activity that promotes human rights and legal labor practices, you deserve justice. Unfortunately, employees who make claims or are involved in sexual harassment, discrimination or whistleblower claims are sometimes unlawfully terminated. Also known as wrongful discharge, unlawful termination based on protected characteristics such as race, gender, age, and disability is prohibited by several laws that relate to human rights.
Laws that Prohibit Discrimination Leading to Wrongful Termination in Chicago
State and federal laws protect employees from being fired based on personal characteristics and traits. Some of those laws include:
