Employment Discrimination/Retaliation

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it unlawful for an employer to discriminate against any individual with respect to her compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment because of that individual's sex, race, national origin, or religion. There are also laws that prohibit discrimination in employment, whether hiring or promoting, based on disability or age, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), respectively.

If you have complained to your employer about employment discrimination and have been fired or punished in some other way, you may also have a claim for retaliation. In Illinois, you cannot be retaliated against for exercising a statutory right, such as complaining about being discriminated against or reporting discrimination.
