About Illinois Employment Laws

Illinois is an “at will” state, which means an Illinois employer can fire an employee for any reason, at any time. This is powerful as it means many bad actions by your boss, supervisor or human resources are not necessarily illegal. In other words you must experience an illegal adverse action to take action. While every case is different, you may be surprised to find out it’s perfectly legal for the following to occur in an Illinois workplace:

  • Sudden job termination with no advance warning or real explanation
  • Ostracism by your co-workers
  • Personality conflicts
  • A mediocre performance evaluation, not made available to other employers
  • A job transfer or demotion after 10+ years of employment
  • Refusing to keep your job open after more than 6 months of leave
  • Denial of unemployment benefits for alleged “misconduct”

However, local, state and federal laws protect Illinois employees from illegal actions such as:

  • Workplace discrimination and harassment
  • Retaliation for alleging illegal workplace actions
  • Refusal to accommodate pregnancy, breastfeeding and sick child rights
  • Medical leave violations
  • Unpaid wages, commission and bonuses
  • Denial of unemployment benefits when an employer cannot prove “misconduct”
