Wage Disputes

Prime Law Group, LLC handles all types of wage disputes on behalf of both defendants and plaintiffs.  Our attorneys are well-versed in state and federal wage laws, including the Illinois Wage Payment Collection Act.  We are able to advise employers on wage law compliance and assist in negotiating and litigating wage disputes.  Common disputes may involve the classification of workers as exempt or non-exempt employees, minimum wage, overtime pay, holiday and vacation pay, sick leave, meal and rest periods, and alleged discrimination by an employer in a Wage Act complaint.

Discrimination

Employment discrimination disputes may involve a complex interplay of state and federal laws, making it important for employers, unions, and employees to consult a knowledgeable attorney to determine how the laws may apply to their particular situation.  Under both Illinois  State and federal laws, it is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against an employee based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, or sexual orientation, or against a qualified individual with a disability.  In addition, under Illinois law, employees who are between age 40 and 70 are protected from discrimination based on their age, whereas there is no upper age limit under the federal Age Discrimination Act (ADEA).  Discrimination claims commonly arise in regard to hiring, firing, wages, or other allegedly adverse actions affecting a protected class of people.  Our attorneys are experienced in assisting clients in all aspects of discrimination disputes, including advising on internal company procedures, and handling negotiations, mediations, and litigation.
