Chicago Employment Discrimination Lawyer

Assisting Victims of Workplace Discrimination in Chicago, IL

Federal, state and local laws protect employees and job applicants against discrimination in the workplace. Discrimination is generally defined as unfair treatment because of prejudice based on race, age, physical disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, national origin or religious beliefs. Discriminatory practices may be present in hiring, promoting, and compensating and disciplining employees. Discrimination may also affect job assignments and may be connected to wrongful termination or other forms of employer retaliation if an employee reports or threatens to report discrimination.

If you are being treated unfairly at work, have been passed up for a job or have been terminated and you believe this is due to discrimination, a Chicago employment law attorney at the Law Offices of Fern Trevino can offer you the counsel and representation you need. The firm represents Chicago-area employees and executives in claims related to all forms of discrimination, and turns down all requests to represent employers.

Why an attorney for your employment discrimination case?

Discrimination cases present particular difficulties because it may be hard to prove that an employer or co-worker acted in a discriminatory way. Illinois is an employment at-will state, meaning that employers may terminate employees for virtually any reason but an illegal reason. As a result, it may be difficult for an employee to prove that the employer was motivated to act by discrimination. The Law Offices of Fern Trevino has 20 years of experience ferreting out facts that support a discriminatory motive. Find out how the Law Offices of Fern Trevino can help you succeed with a discrimination claim. Contact a Chicago workplace discrimination lawyer.
