Experience With Administrative Processes, Negotiation, and Discrimination Litigation

We are prepared to defend your business against claims of discrimination in any forum. We have experience with both formal litigation and administrative hearings. Our attorneys are also skilled negotiators who prioritize securing dismissal for weak cases.

Essentially, we understand that a claim could affect your bottom line. Our goal is always to obtain the best possible outcome in the most efficient manner.

Deep Knowledge of Employment Law

We defend public- and private-sector organizations against discrimination claims. These claims typically include allegations of decision-making based on a protected class. Protected aspects include but are not limited to:

  • Age (40 and older)
  • National origin
  • Pregnancy status, gender identity, sexual orientation
  • Genetics and family medical history
  • Race, skin color, hair texture
  • Religion
  • Disability

Claimants could be current, former, or even prospective employees. Potentially every aspect of the employee-employer relationship is subject to a variety of civil rights laws, most notably:

  • The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution
  • The Americans With Disabilities Act
  • The Family And Medical Leave Act
  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964

Our attorneys have experience representing both sides of these cases. In addition to possessing extensive knowledge of these laws, we understand the agenda of both parties in a typical case.

Defending Management Against Discrimination Claims

In a discrimination case, a worker will likely claim that an adverse action — not getting a job, being passed over for a promotion, or being fired, for example — was the result of illegal decision-making on the part of your company. The main strategies for your defense might include:

  • Showing evidence of poor employee performance, criminal activity, absenteeism, or other non-discriminatory reasons for your action
  • Showing lack of compliance with Equal Opportunity Exchange Commission statute or procedure, in the case of an administrative action

Preparing Illinois Businesses for Compliance

The most efficient defenses are preparation and risk reduction. Here are some of the ways our attorneys help companies dissuade baseless claims and strengthen their arguments:

  • Establish and audit recordkeeping practices throughout the employment process
  • Advise on the development, implementation, and equal enforcement of anti-discrimination policies
  • Educate management and employees on how to maintain a non-discriminatory culture and physical work environment
  • Consult with management regarding providing accommodation and preventing escalation
  • Audit all internal processes for discrimination claim risk
