Employment Matters

employment matters

For government employers seeking employee discipline or termination, we can provide assistance at every stage of the process.

Our attorneys have appeared on behalf of our public sector clients before various administrative bodies, such as fire and police commissions. We provide assistance and counsel at every stage of the disciplinary process, including initial investigations, all required notice, due process hearings, and judicial appeals.

We have extensive experience in providing administrative process assistance for Public Safety Employee Benefit Act (PSEBA) hearings and Public Employee Disability Act (PEDA) determinations.

Our firm also has experience with all forms of local government internal investigations, including the investigation of grievances as an outside complaint manager.


We frequently handle matters before the Illinois Department of Human Rights (IDHR), the Illinois Human Rights Commission (IHRC), and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

While our goal is to help our clients avoid litigation, we have wide experience in employment litigation, including discrimination and sexual harassment cases and claims arising under Title VII and Section 1983. Our attorneys have defended public sector employers against wrongful discharge and employment tort claims in federal and state courts. We are committed to providing an aggressive defense for our clients while remaining cognizant of economic realities.
