Workplace Accommodations and Leaves of Absence
Do you believe your employer terminated you or treated you unfairly on account of your race, national origin, color, or citizenship status?
Employers must provide reasonable accommodations to qualified employees to allow them to do their job and enjoy equal employment opportunities.
Federal and Illinois laws entitle employees living with disabilities, pregnant employees or employees who recently gave birth, and individuals with certain sincerely held religious beliefs to receive reasonable accommodations in order to allow them to fulfill the essential functions of their role.
Call today for a free consultation to discuss if you believe you need such an accommodation, have had a request for such an accommodation denied, or were retaliated against, discriminated against, or otherwise mistreated for seeking such an accommodation.
In addition, federal law requires covered employers to provide qualified employees protected time off due to illnesses or certain family-related issues, including for pregnancy, the birth of a new child or adoption. Call today for a free consultation to discuss if you believe you need such a leave of absence, have had a request for such a leave of absence denied, or were otherwise mistreated for seeking such a leave of absence.
Statutes of limitations and deadlines to file administrative agency charges may apply, so time may be of the essence.
