Illinois Discrimination

Several federal laws provide workplace discrimination protections for employees. In addition, the Illinois Human Rights Act (IHRA) provides broad workplace discrimination protections to employees in Illinois.

Covered Employers

The IHRA generally applies to employers with at least 15 employees in Illinois during 20 or more calendar weeks in the current or preceding calendar year. However, all employers must comply with the IHRA's prohibitions against discrimination based upon physical or mental disability, sex, and pregnancy.
