Employment law involves the intersection of numerous state and federal laws. At Vucko Law LLP, we have significant experience representing clients in employment disputes before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Illinois Department of Human Rights and in court. Using our detailed knowledge of state and federal antidiscrimination laws, we guide both individuals and businesses in navigating this complex practice area. Additionally, we are experienced in other employment disputes, including wage and hour claims, negotiations of severance agreements, and contractual matters. 

Federal and state laws prohibit Illinois employers from discriminating against individuals based on their protected characteristics. These protected characteristics could include the following: 

  • Race

  • Color

  • Gender/ Sex

  • ​Pregnancy

  • ​Age (40 and over)

  • Religion

  • Disability 

  • National Origin

  • Ancestry

  • Order of protection status

  • Marital status

  • Military status

  • Unfavorable discharge from military service

  • ​Sexual orientation (including gender-related identity)

  • Parental status

If your employer has treated you less favorably because of a legally protected trait listed above, you may have a claim for discrimination. Vucko Law LLP is available for a free initial consultation to discuss your legal rights at (312) 522-2517
