EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION AND LABOR RIGHTS
At the Law Offices of Al Hofeld, Jr., we don’t have to be convinced that the American workplace is still permeated by both intentional and unconscious discrimination against people of color, women, people of other nationalities and religious faiths. We know that discrimination is rarely open and overt and, far more often, is quiet, subtle and insidious. We understand that discrimination can be devastating to our clients – devastating financially, to their careers, to their self-esteem, to their emotional and physical health, and to their families. We accept the gamut of employment cases, including:
- Employment discrimination;
- Harassment/hostile work environment;
- Wrongful termination;
- Family Medical Leave Act violations;
- Americans with Disabilities Act violations; and
- Unfair wages and hours.
At the Law Offices of Al Hofeld, Jr., LLC, we take on the tough employment discrimination cases and fight tooth-and-nail against employers small and large, corporate and government, for profit and non-profit, to win just compensation and other relief to make our clients whole again.
To pursue a court case, you will have to file a complaint with the Equal Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and/or the Illinois Department of Human Rights (IDHR) before you can file a lawsuit. Please be advised that the EEOC and IDHR have very short filing deadlines; you must file within 180 days following the last act of discrimination. Our firm can evaluate your case at any time before or after you file with the EEOC and/or IDHR. If you have already obtained your “right-to-sue” letter from the EEOC, then please be advised that you must file your lawsuit in court within 90 days or lose your right to do so. You can file “pro se” (i.e., by yourself) if you have not yet hired an attorney. To discuss pursuing an employment case, call us today: 773-241-5844.
