Why You Need an Employment Discrimination Lawyer
If you believe that you were the victim of employment discrimination, sexual harassment, or retaliatory discharge, it is highly recommended that you consult with an employment attorney as soon as possible. If you successfully prove that you were the victim of employment discrimination, you may be able to recover money damages and other remedies. Employment discrimination cases can be particularly challenging to pursue, however, for a number of reasons. For instance, employment in Illinois is “at will,” which means that employers can terminate employees for almost any reason, accept an illegal reason such as discrimination.
Employment discrimination claims can also be difficult to pursue because witnesses or supporting evidence to support a claim that the employer was motivated to act by discrimination may be difficult to find. An employment discrimination lawyer can help you overcome these hurdles and gather the necessary evidence to support your claim.
Employment lawyer William Provenzano focuses exclusively on handling employment matters, including claims of employment discrimination, sexual harassment, and wrongful termination.
