What Are the Wrongful Termination Laws in Illinois?

Illinois is an at-will state and, as such, an employee can generally be terminated from their position at any time for any reason, or for no reason at all. While this is the general rule, there are many exceptions that have fallen into the general category of wrongful termination lawsuits.

Common scenarios include:

  • If an employee is terminated in retaliation for exercising his or her rights, or because of a protected characteristic—such as race, religion, sex, age, or disability.
  • If an employee is terminated in retaliation for engaging in in whistleblower actions such as filing a workers compensation claim, reporting an employer’s unlawful conduct, and cooperating in a criminal investigation or governmental inquiry.

Our Naperville & Chicago Attorneys Are on Your Side!

If you are wrongfully terminated, it is important that you contact an employment lawyer to avoid waiving the right to bring your lawsuit. All employment claims have a time limitation in which you must either make an appropriate complaint with a governmental agency (for example the EEOC) or to file a lawsuit. Some of the deadlines to file a wrongful termination claim are very short.
