  • Wrongful Termination? Illinois

    I am due overtime from my employer but they refuse to pay. I filed a complain with the Illinois Department of Labor. I notified my employer of this (not sure I should have done that). It so happened that the same day I notified them of the complaint there was a job posting on Craigslist for my job-created less than one hour after I notified them. Am I protected from termination for filing a complait against them? Thanks!!!

    If you are terminated for filing the complaint, amend your complaint with the Il.
    DOL to include retaliation for filing the complaint/claim.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
