Employment Law

What Cases Are Included in Employment Law?

Employment law encompasses cases that concern worker wages, workplace safety, discrimination, sexual harassment and wrongful termination.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or EEOC protects employees when they make complaints against their employers. An employee has the right to file a complaint against her employer if she believes that she has been discriminated against on the basis of race, genetic information, disability, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy, gender, religion or color.

The Illinois Department of Human Rights or IDHR is also an agency that workers may turn to if they believe that they have been discriminated against in their jobs or are being sexually harassed.
