About Our Employment Law Services

Fish Potter Bolaños, P.C. provides legal services for all types of labor and employment disputes in Illinois. These include but are not limited to matters of:

Discrimination - Our employment discrimination legal team provides comprehensive representation to those harmed by wrongful termination due to discrimination. We also offer guidance and advice for employees who are in need of a medical accommodation or leave from work.

Non-Competes - In the state of Illinois, a non-compete agreement is an accord that workers are asked to sign at the time of onboarding or when receiving severance pay. This promise commonly limits employees from taking part in competitive endeavors during and after their employment with the company where the non-compete was signed. Non-competes are only enforceable in Illinois if they protect legitimate business agreements.

Overtime - If you exceed 40 hours of work in a week, overtime pay may be due to you. However, not all employees are legally eligible for overtime wages and some employers set limits on the number of weekly hours an employee can log before it is considered overtime. To ensure your legal rights are protected, always consult with a lawyer if you believe that your employer has denied appropriate payment for working over 40 hours per week.

Pregnancy Discrimination – Pregnancy is a protected class, making it illegal to discriminate on the basis of pregnancy when it comes to hiring/firing, training, job assignments, promotions, wages, and/or benefits.

Retaliation - Retaliation claims are protected by Equal Employment Opportunity laws (EEO) and can be filed by an employee who has been treated unjustly or experienced repercussions after noting a discrimination claim against their employer.
