Discrimination – Sex, Age, Race, Pregnancy, National Origin, Religion, Disability

Federal and state laws prohibit employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of their age, sex, gender, race, religion, disability, national origin or if they are pregnant.

You may have been fired, denied a promotion, not hired, denied a workplace accommodation or somehow treated unfairly.  These are all forms of discrimination. Attorneys Amy and Tom Cramer understand this can be stressful and often overwhelming process. They help clients navigate through the system.

We know what constitutes discrimination in the workplace, and we can help you file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the necessary State of Illinois agencies.

If you’ve already filed an EEOC claim, we provide sound legal strategy and counsel that best fits your claim.

  • Representing Ph.D., in education in discrimination claim against one of nation’s top universities.
  • Represented high-level executive in departure from a publicly traded commercial real estate firm. Exec later ran for U.S. Congress.

Often workplace discrimination goes hand in hand with legal employment issues of workplace harassment or a hostile work environment.  We understand the nuances and take the time to listen to you to help determine the best legal strategy and classification for your employment issue.

Workplace discrimination may happen to workers ranging from the C-suite to the custodian. Workplace discrimination occurs in all industries and professions.

If you feel that you are being discriminated against call or email Tom or Amy Cramer to explore your claim.

Amy helped me through an extremely difficult time. I was nine months pregnant and had just been let go from my employer of over 8 years. Amy not only guided me through my options in a clear, concise and timely manner but handled my estrogen-fueled emotions with compassion and empathy. We were able to negotiate a great outcome in a timely manner so that I could focus on my new baby. I highly recommend Amy and can’t thank her enough for all that she did for me.
