At Caffarelli & Associates, Ltd., Alejandro Caffarelli and the rest of our skilled team are committed to helping individuals with a wide range of employment disputes. In addition, we also assist consumers in Chicago and surrounding areas who have been victimized by corporate fraud.
We understand what it takes to effectively fight on your behalf to get you the results you want. In such a complicated area of law, we can ensure you understand exactly what is happening at every step of the way.
This area of law concerns protecting Illinois residents from unethical business practices. Examples of when you would need a consumer lawyer in Chicago include collection letters and practices, credit reporting problems, medical bills, mortgages, and more.
Another area of law with which we can assist is workplace discrimination. This occurs when an employee experiences some sort of adverse action as the result of a protected characteristic, including age, race, gender, religion, national origin, mental disability, or another characteristic. We have extensive experience with discrimination cases and we are committed to fighting on your behalf.
Employment Contract Law
Employment law often revolves around the legal side of termination agreements, overtime pay, independent contractors, severance, and more. Regardless of the situation that you are facing, our team can swiftly get to the bottom of the issue and provide you with a clear path forward.
Family Leave & Medical Employment Law
This area of law outlines the rights to which employees are entitled following the birth of a child, adoption placement, caring for a family member who has a serious health condition, or the employee’s inability to work following a serious health condition. If you believe your rights under the FMLA have been violated, our team is happy to provide assistance.
Wages & Overtime
One of the main areas of our practice is wages & overtime law. In the state of Illinois, all non-exempt hourly employees must make at least the minimum wage. All time worked over 40 hours per week needs to be compensated at time and a half. If you believe you aren’t being compensated fairly, reach out to our firm for help.
Whistleblowers guard the public interest and the False Claims Act encourages employees to report fraudulent behavior to the government. Employees are rewarded for being transparent with the government, as they receive a portion of the money that the government recovers.
We understand that most people have never stepped foot inside of a courtroom and that the legal process can be daunting and overwhelming. This is where our expertise shines. Get in touch with our staff today to learn more about how we can help.
