The differences between a partnership and an LLC

Being an entrepreneur these days is very common. Whether it is a small business or a large company, starting a business is an exciting time for individuals in Illinois and elsewhere. However, it is also a time where many serious and important decisions are made. And these decisions are required from the very start, such as deciding what type of business to form.

Helping you address discrimination in the workplace

Whether you just started a job or have been with the same company your entire adult life, it is important to understand the rights afforded to employees in Illinois and elsewhere. These rights essentially translate to duties imposed upon employers. For example, an employer has the duty to provide a safe working environment. They also have the duty to not discriminate against employees and address any instances of discrimination or sexual harassment.

How can an immigrant avoid removal?

It can take much time and effort for an immigrant to leave their home country and venture to America. The goal may be to remain in the U.S. for an extended period of time, or possibly, make it their new home. No matter what the end goal may be, immigrants coming into the country at Illinois or any other state must follow certain requirements to remain in the country legally. And if these are not met or an immigrant does not comply with the rules, deportation and removal is possible.

Understanding the naturalization process

Foreign nationals come to the U.S. for a wide variety of reasons. While many of these reasons cause a foreigner to be in the country temporarily, there are some reasons to make a stay permanent. And when immigrants seek to make Chicago or any other city their forever home, there are required steps. With regards to naturalization, an immigrant not only needs to qualify for naturalization, they must follow the process.

Judge accused of sexual harassment

The workplace is not always a perfect place. There are ups and downs, and some employees may not get along. However, all workplaces should be free from sexual harassment. Unfortunately, some employees and employers fail to uphold these rights by making comments or carrying out certain acts.
