Building A Strong Defense To Counter A Wrongful Discharge Claim
Although Illinois employers have the right to terminate positions at any time, they recognize the legal risks that accompany discharging an employee without reason. It can be costly to defend against a wrongful termination claim, which is why it is vital for employers to take a proactive stance before the situation arises.
The legal team at Storm & Piscopo, P.C. has decades of experience representing business owners throughout Chicagoland. Our attorneys have strong business and employment law backgrounds that they use to anticipate and resolve contentious employee conflicts.
