Whether you are single, married, divorced or living with another person, it is not the business of your employer. This is a right that many people don't realize exists and I am happy to explain this right in more detail to you. The number of discrimination cases in Chicago seems to be on the rise and I believe this is the fact for the entire state of Illinois. Don't let the company try to ask you about information they are not entitled to under the law. As an employee in Illinois you have guaranteed rights and the company may not take those rights away.
Many employers wrongly believe a single mother can't do the job a married female with a family can do. This is a wrong general assumption and illegal in Illinois. If you believe you are the victim of discrimination based on marital status you should speak with my office at once. Most of the time marital based discrimination takes place during a job interview or promotion review. So even though you don't work for a company doesn't mean you may not have a discrimination claim against that company. If you don't get hired and believe it is because you are single, a single mother or other marital status reason contact my office to discuss.
I am even seeing more cases where employers are looking at employees Facebook accounts to learn information about employees. Much of the information they are learning could lead to a discrimination lawsuit. For example many Facebook profiles show a persons age, race, marital status, perhaps sexual orientation and religion. All of these categories are protected in Illinois under the law and the mere fact an employer is inquiring about them in my opinion is the basis of a discrimination claim. Make sure you protect all of your rights to non-discriminatory employment hiring practices and call my office for a free consultation.
My office gets calls from all types of discrimination cases and I am happy to discuss your legal issue--free of charge. I don't charge hourly to handle discrimination cases for plaintiffs and only get a fee if and when you recover any money. I have an office in Chicago, to better handle cases throughout the state of Illinois. I have taken discrimination cases in front of all the Judges at the Human Rights Commission on both Springfield and Chicago.
