Chicago to Cairo, Danville to Rock Island:
Defuse the employment lawsuits ticking
Dear HR Executive,
Toe the line on federal employment law, and Illinois law could still trip you up:
It’s not easy being an employer in Illinois. Disgruntled employees and their big-shot lawyers use all sorts of laws to get even with employers. Plus, Illinois jurors are famously generous to fired employees. And Illinois lawyers are notorious for using state laws to sue employers in all kinds of creative ways – even if the employer complies perfectly with federal law.
Make even one little employment law mistake, and your organization could be making the evening news and every newspaper for miles around.
Here’s why: Attorneys used to be satisfied with suing employers under well-defined federal laws like the ADA, FLSA and the FMLA. But Congress cut the amount of money employees could win in federal cases (and that cut the attorney’s share).
So, to make a bigger haul, lawyers are coming after
Illinois employers through state and even local laws.
The bad news: Those lawyers can use a mountain of laws against you – with absolutely NO limit on how much a generous jury can award to disgruntled employees. Worse yet: Today’s litigious workers and super-aggressive lawyers aren’t just going after companies – they’re also suing supervisors, managers and HR professionals personally.
That means your bank account, your home and everything else you’ve
worked so hard for is at risk every time you make a decision at work.
Lawsuit-happy employees may rely on friendly juries and ferocious attorneys. But with the guidance right here, right now, you may never have to face them in court.
That’s because your protection starts now with this sample issue of Illinois Employment Law, among the newest of the well-known HR Specialist advisory newsletters.
