Wrongful Termination

Illinois Wrongful Termination Attorneys

Fighting for Illinois Workers

Losing a job can be an incredibly stressful experience. However, being wrongfully terminated adds complicated emotions such as anger, betrayal, injustice, and contempt to an already-challenging situation.

Illinois operates under the "employment at-will" principle, allowing employers or employees to legally end the employment relationship for any reason or no reason at all. Unfortunately, this means that employers can sometimes act unfairly, unethically, or unjustly when terminating an employee. However, state and federal laws protect employees from being fired for certain reasons, providing grounds for wrongful termination claims or lawsuits against employers.

What Qualifies as Wrongful Termination?

The following situations may serve as grounds for a wrongful termination claim:

  1. Discrimination: Firing an employee based on discriminatory factors such as sex, race, age, religion, disability, or national origin.
  2. Medical Condition: Termination based on a medical condition, including pregnancy, is unlawful. Taking medical leave in compliance with the Family and Medical Leave Act is also protected.
  3. Performance of Legal Rights or Public Policy Issues: Employees cannot be fired for exercising their rights, such as joining a union, filing a workers' compensation claim, reporting safety violations, fulfilling jury duty obligations, or engaging in public service activities.
  4. Contractual Rights & Policy Issues: Employers cannot violate the terms of a written contract or policies outlined in an employee manual or handbook, including employment duration or termination procedures.

While Illinois follows the at-will employment doctrine, allowing employment to be terminated at any time with or without cause, there are exceptions to this rule. In cases of unlawful termination, employees have the right to pursue legal action against their employers for wrongful termination.
