Understanding your rights as an employee

As an employee in the state of Illinois, you have certain rights - rights that you can fight for if not provided by your employer. This goes for both hourly and salaried employees. These rights include: overtime pay, minimum wage, vacation and sick leave, protection from discrimination and harassment and meal and day breaks.

What is age discrimination?

In some cultures, older members of the population are considered highly knowledgeable individuals who are revered and honored by those who live with them. They are seen as wise elders who guide the decisions of their communities and offer reflections on the past to help younger generations avoid making similar mistakes. In Illinois and throughout the United States, this sentiment is not always shared by all employers.
