Chicago Employment Discrimination Lawyer

At the Law Offices of Josh Friedman, we have been protecting the rights of employees for more than 20 years. We know how it feels to have your livelihood threatened. We fight to protect your rights and for you to receive all the compensation to which you are legally entitled.

Our Practice Areas

We work in all areas of employment law including, but not limited to:

  • Discrimination on any grounds including age, gender, sexual identity, race or nationality, disability and any other protected class.
  • Overtime pay disputes.
  • Collection of unemployment benefits.
  • Collection of unpaid wages.
  • Wage and hour disputes.
  • Disability claims.
  • Wrongful termination.
  • Review, evaluate and negotiate severance agreements.
  • Review, evaluate and negotiate non-compete clauses.
  • Whistleblower protection against retaliation.
  • Paid family leave.
  • Workers’ compensation issues.
  • Unsafe workplace conditions.

There are state and federal laws that employers must follow. When they fail to obey employment laws and you suffer damages as a result, we step in and work to see that employers are compelled to comply. There are also situations where a promise found in an employer/employee handbook is broken and employees need help forcing employers to make good on their promises.

At the Law Offices of Josh Friedman, we are dedicated, hard-working, knowledgeable and willing to fight for your rights. Our principal, Josh Friedman, has taught employment law and is the author of a number of employment law articles that have been published in legal journals across the country. He has worked for firms who represented employers, so he knows what to expect from the other side.

All of us at the Friedman firm understand the difficulty of finding your way through the employment law minefield. We strive to resolve your issues as economically as possible in the shortest amount of time. We are skilled in working in alternate forms of dispute resolution like mediation, arbitration and settlement conferences.

If alternative methods do not work, we are aggressive litigators in the courtroom and work diligently and vigorously on your behalf. We conduct our own investigation and evaluate each case on its own merit. We act at all times only with your best interest in mind.

No matter what type of issue you have with your employer or employment situation, call us at 312-886-0277 for a free consultation.
