Employment Discrimination

Is There Rhyme or Reason?

Peoria Employment Discrimination Attorney — Nicoara & Steagall

Sometimes employers don't give a reason why they let go of an employee or choose one job applicant over another or promote this person instead of that one. Sometimes, they do. This decision is usually up to them. Given that, how do you prove you've been the victim of employment discrimination? Feelings of humiliation and anger are not enough.

Fortunately, the telltale sign of employer discrimination is that their decisions and patterns of conduct, when viewed objectively, do not make any sense.

If you suspect that you've been the victim of racial discrimination, sex discrimination or age discrimination in the workplace — contact an experienced employment lawyer at our law firm today.

Our firm handles employment discrimination cases throughout Central Illinois. Our practice includes cases of discrimination based on:

  • Race
  • Age
  • Sex
  • Religion
  • Sexual orientation
  • Disability
  • Pregnancy and other medical conditions

The amount of legislation prohibiting employment discrimination is staggering. The Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) are just a few. Despite all of these, employment discrimination continues to occur on an alarmingly frequent basis.

Attorney Richard L. Steagall has been handling these types of claims in the state and federal courts of Illinois for 30 years. This experience allows him to quickly evaluate and identify specific incidents or patterns of employer discrimination. As your lawyer, he can put all of that experience and the resources of this firm to work for you.
