Protect your employment rights, livelihood with legal help

| Jun 29, 2018 | Employment Law |

Seeking employment can be a hard process for an Illinois resident. After combing through postings about different positions, finding options that match one’s qualifications and experience and submitting all of the necessary documentation to show one’s fitness of a particular employment role a person may have to wait weeks to find out that they were not selected for a job.

Over time the process can wear a person down, but if the individual finds that they are not getting considered for jobs because of some personal characteristic, the process can be that much worse. Employers who make hiring decisions based on applicants’ ages, races, genders and other protected classifications are breaking the law and practicing discrimination in the workplace.
