Hello - I'm sorry that your previous Expert opted out of your question.
We cannot give you the names of individual attorneys through Just Answer. What we can do is provide links to resources, where you can find an attorney.
In Illinois, if you want to find an employment attorney you may want to first try through this organization:
You can find trial attorneys through here:
Another place is the bar association's web site: http://www.illinoislawyerfinder.com/
Don't actually HIRE an attorney without first checking references. And don't try to pick the attorney's brain on the phone. Schedule an appointment and visit the office, like you would for a doctor!
I'm very sorry about your termination. Do you want to discuss what happened?
If you think that you were the victim of illegal discrimination (race, gender, national origin, disability, etc) and there are enough employees, in Illinois, you can file a complaint here: http://www.state.il.us/ihrc/forms/complaint.pdf
You can contact the EEOC here: http://www.eeoc.gov/ (there's a ton of great information at this website!)
If you start with the state agency, in most states they'll file a complaint with the EEOC on your behalf at the same time.
There are deadlines for filing, so don't delay!
Complaint investigations are free. They're not always the best, XXXXX XXXXX do get a free investigation. If it looks like they are going to file a "no cause" finding, withdraw your complaint before they do. That way, if you go to court, a "no cause" finding can't be used against you.
I'll assume that I have answered your question and will "ACCEPT" my answer unless I hear back from you with follow-up questions.
Bonuses of even a few dollars are much appreciated.
I REALLY appreciate POSITIVE FEEDBACK!
