Illinois Employment Discrimination Attorneys

Employment Discrimination Lawyers

At Benassi & Benassi, our employment discrimination lawyers help people who have been injured economically and emotionally by workplace discrimination. We are committed to seeking justice for people who have been denied promotions, compensated with lower wages and benefits, or denied employment based on their race, religion, national origin, sex or gender, age, sexual orientation, veteran status, marital status, or disability or perceived disability.

Experienced Employment Discrimination Attorneys

Employment discrimination cases are complex and are often difficult to win. Therefore, it is important to have an attorney who has extensive experience in sex discrimination, age discrimination, disability discrimination, and race discrimination cases. Our discrimination attorneys have handled a wide range of cases involving:

  • Title VII (sex, race, religion, national origin, retaliation, etc.)
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
  • Illinois Human Rights Act
  • Title IX (discrimination in education)
  • Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • US and Illinois Constitution

One of the difficulties in handling discrimination cases is that discrimination is rarely overt. It has often occurred for years and affected many people. Therefore it is helpful to establish a pattern of unlawful behavior. If that can be done, these cases can be filed as multi-plaintiff cases or class action cases that can help individuals obtain fair and just results. Our discrimination attorneys do not shy away from complex cases against big companies. We have the skill, experience, and resources necessary to help our clients obtain justice.
