Anyone Can Suffer From Employer Mistreatment

No matter where you work, what you do or for how long you’ve held your position, your employer can treat you poorly and unlawfully – leaving you angry, intimidated, violated or out of a job. At the Law Office of Steven Horak, I am firmly committed to holding discriminatory, abusive or predatory employers accountable for their actions – and to helping Chicagoland employees recover from mistreatment. As a dedicated employment law attorney for over 30 years and holding a Masters in Industrial Relations from one of the country’s most prestigious programs, I have decades of proven knowledge and a reputation for fierce advocacy to your case. Working with you directly, I will listen to your story, help you understand your options, and craft a legal strategy that forcefully asserts your rights and dignity.

Supportive Service Across All Industries, Professions And Claims

I serve clients who have been harmed by all forms of employer misconduct, across all industries and sectors. I represent those who work for private companies, local municipalities and the federal government, and whose occupations range from plumbers to postal workers to pharmacists. In the past three decades, I have litigated claims including, but not limited to:

  • Discrimination: The federal government prohibits discrimination against workers on the basis of race, color, religion, age, disability, national origin, sex, sexual orientation or gender identity. Additionally, Illinois state law prohibits discrimination on the basis of several other factors, including marital status, citizenship status, lack of a permanent mailing address, or criminal record.
  • Hostile work environment: Wherein an employer creates, or fails to correct, a work environment that is intimidating or abusive. This can include sexual harassment, grabbing or groping in the workplace.
  • Retaliation: When an employer harasses, demotes, or fires an employee who has filed a workplace discrimination claim or participated in a workplace discrimination investigation.
  • Wrongful termination: When an employer fires an employee in violation of an employment contract, or as part of the employer’s discrimination or retaliation against the employee.

If you have been denied a promotion, removed from your position, or otherwise harmed by your employer in the workplace, more than a title or cubicle can be at stake: your livelihood, safety and security can be directly threatened by employer misconduct. I encourage you to meet with me to discuss your situation and explore whether your mistreatment may have been unlawful.
