About Employment Discrimination
Employment discrimination is illegal under state and federal law. For instance, the Illinois Human Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on various protected characteristics, including race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, and marital status. Similarly, federal laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADA) protect employees from discriminatory practices.
Examples of this include:
- Racial discrimination – denial of employment, promotion, or benefits based on race or color
- Religious discrimination – refusing to accommodate an employee’s religious practices or beliefs
- Gender discrimination – pay disparities, unequal treatment, or harassment based on gender
- Disability discrimination – failure to provide reasonable accommodations or discriminatory terminations
- Age discrimination – unfair treatment or termination due to an individual’s age
Despite legal protections against this, employers have wide latitude when making employment decisions and an unfair advantage over employees in claims.
If you receive an adverse decision from an administrative agency or lower court, you have the option to appeal. Let our accomplished attorneys guide you through the appeals process and protect your rights.
Federal Appeals of Employment Discrimination Decisions
While Illinois appellate courts handle many appeals, federal courts have jurisdiction over cases involving violations of federal employment discrimination laws, including Title VII, ADA, and ADEA.
Typically, federal appeals arise when the lower court decision involves a significant federal legal issue or when the parties are from different states. We have an adept understanding of federal employment discrimination laws and the skills to effectively advocate for your rights in federal appellate courts.
