Wrongful Termination Lawyer in Chicago

Wrongful termination occurs when an employee is terminated for an illegal reason such as discrimination or engaging in “protected activity,” which is activity that is protected by law. Complaining of illegal discrimination, reporting sexual harassment, reporting or refusing to participate in certain types of illegal activity, and taking leave protected by the Family and Medical Leave Act are a few examples of “protected activity".

Retaliatory discharge is a form of wrongful termination. The term, “retaliatory discharge” is most often used in Illinois to refer to (a) an employee’s claim that s/he was terminated for having reported some type of illegal or improper conduct on the part of the employer or (b) an employee’s claim that s/he was terminated because s/he may file or has filed a worker’s compensation claim.

Remedies for wrongful termination depend on the facts of each case and the specific laws that pertain to those facts.
