Practical Approaches To Employee Disputes
Our team provides management and employee training. We can help your business avoid federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and Illinois Human Rights Act disputes. We can draft policies, customize contracts and build handbooks specifically for your type of business enterprise. Our lawyers can also help you if your employee has filed a claim against you or a co-worker for unlawful discrimination or behavior involving:
- Gender or sexual identification
- Religious affiliation
- National origin
- Military service background
- Sexual harassment
- Hostile work environment
- Other harassment claims
Businesses need to take these types of claims seriously. However, not every claim is meritorious. There are nuanced distinctions separating a genuine claim from a bogus one. A knowledgeable employment law attorney can help you make those distinctions.
