IL STATE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: Small Business Advocates Warn Anti-Discrimination Measure Could Mean More Litigation
IL State Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Aug. 1.
A state lawmaker is pushing for the governor to sign a bill that some worry would open small employers to frivolous discrimination lawsuits.
State Rep. Will Guzzardi, D-Chicago, said there’s a problem in state law.
In “most small businesses around the state of Illinois, it is perfectly legal to discriminate against employees on the basis of age or gender or disability status, or religion,” Guzzardi said.
