If you are a worker who has experienced discrimination or harassment in the workplace, you know all too well how painful and career-altering such conduct can be.
Discrimination takes many forms and can impact your hiring, compensation, prospects for promotion or even get you fired.
Harassment involves unwelcome conduct by supervisors, coworkers or others that is so offensive, intimidating or abusive that it changes your work environment or impacts your performance. It can permanently harm your work relationships, emotional and physical health and even your career.
Savine Employment Law, Ltd. represents Chicago and Illinois workers who have suffered illegal workplace discrimination and harassment. We help individuals identify and evaluate their discrimination and harassment claims, chart paths for resolution, and pursue those paths zealously on their behalf.
We have deep experience handling claims under federal, state and local laws for discrimination and harassment based on sex, pregnancy, family responsibility, parental status, race, color, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, arrest record, criminal conviction record, credit history, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, LGBTQ status, marital status, disability, age, genetic information, protective order status, military status, and use of law products outside working hours, among others.

When it comes to negotiation, Gary’s skills can appear almost magical. I hired Gary to help me with an executive-level transition, as I was exited from a six-figure job and starting a new job with a direct competitor. Gary identified hidden traps in the severance offer from my former employer that could have resulted in me losing both the severance and my job. He then negotiated with my former employer to clear the traps and protect my severance, without burning any of my professional bridges. Gary really knows how companies think. In my case, it translated into great results. Gary makes it look easy.

Gary was wonderful. I couldn’t have been luckier when he decided to take my case. It was a very emotional time and Gary was very honest with outcomes and provided all the information that I needed to know. He was a key figure in this journey.
– RETAIL SALES MANAGER, APRIL 13, 2017 (NAME WITHHELD AT CLIENT’S REQUEST)
This was the first time I ever had or needed an attorney, and I’m so glad it was Gary! He explained complex legal issues to me in an easy-to-understand way, and was able to frame options for me to select. This was a challenging time for me emotionally, and whereas I may have given in on some items, he was a strong advocate and negotiated much better terms for me. He was very responsive and accessible when I needed him most. Gary also seems like a genuinely nice person, so someone who could be a great neighbor, friend or attorney.
