Practice Overview

Employment Discrimination

Federal, state, and local laws prohibit employers from discriminating against employees and applicants for employment on the basis of a number of characteristics.  Discrimination can take many forms, including termination, discipline, unequal pay, failure to promote, unequal workplace conditions or opportunities, and harassment.


In Illinois, employers may not discriminate against someone on the basis of race, color, national origin, citizenship status, disability (physical or mental), genetic information, sex, pregnancy (including childbirth and related conditions), victims of domestic violence under an order of protection, sexual orientation or gender identity, marital status, religion, age (over 40), military service, lack of a permanent mailing address or using the mailing address of a shelter or social service provider, and arrest record.  Certain municipalities, including Chicago, have laws that protect even more classes and characteristics.
