Workplace Rights Bureau
The Workplace Rights Bureau protects and advances the employment rights of all Illinois residents, particularly the state’s most vulnerable residents and immigrant populations. The bureau investigates and litigates cases involving serious or persistent wage law violations or other significant employment practices, and monitors and proposes legislation concerning labor and employment issues.
The Workplace Rights Bureau also advocates for important labor and employment law matters by drafting amicus curiae briefs and commenting on proposed regulatory changes. Additionally, the bureau conducts outreach and partners with other governmental entities, community groups, unions and businesses to increase the public’s understanding of their employment rights and to better identify potentially noncompliant employers.
For more information or to file a complaint about an employer’s practices, please call the Workplace Rights Hotline at 1-844-740-5076 or use the complaint form below.
