We provide proactive advocacy for public and private sector clients

Employment law is an evolving landscape of obligations on employers. Our team has public and private sector experience to serve clients with high-quality legal services, which are comprehensive and sensitive to their resources. Our team focuses their practice on issues arising under federal, state, and local employment laws. We serve the business needs of our clients in the following areas:

Litigation of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation

We represent public and private sector clients before administrative agencies, including the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Illinois Department of Human Rights, the Illinois Human Rights Commission, and the Cook County Commission on Human Rights. We handle charges of discrimination involving age, race, sex, disability, national origin, harassment, retaliation, and other civil claims before these administrative agencies, and in Illinois federal and state courts.

Workplace investigations and counseling

We investigate allegations of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and other alleged violations of employment laws or employer policies.

Alternative dispute resolution

We represent public and private sector clients in mediation and settlement conferences, in both Illinois federal and state courts and administrative agencies, which enforce employment laws and ordinances.

Policy and compliance review; risk assessment and prevention

We draft employment handbooks, personnel codes, manuals, and related policies for private and public sector clients.

Management and employee training

We provide non-discrimination, anti-harassment, and anti-retaliation training to senior management, human resources professionals, employees, and supervisors. We also provide workshops, individual training, and counseling on a variety of employment law developments, case management strategies, and related issues.
