Employee Rights

It is unlawful for employers to treat their employees unfairly due to:

  • Race

  • Sexual orientation
  • Disability

If you feel your employer has discriminated against you for any of these reasons, the Law Office of Jonathan A. Backman may be able to help you get your job back or receive damages for the loss of your job.

Privacy Rights

All too often, the government violates the same rights to privacy that it is sworn to uphold. These are common ways individuals’ civil rights are violated:

In criminal law proceedings:

  • Arrest without probable cause
  • Illegal search and seizure

In civil law proceedings:

  • Appropriating a plaintiff’s identity for a defendant’s benefit
  • Placing a plaintiff in a false light in the public eye
  • Privately disclosing public facts about a plaintiff
  • Intruding upon the solitude of a plaintiff

If you have suffered an invasion of privacy at the hands of the government, you don’t have to go all the way to Chicago for a skilled attorney. The Law Office of Jonathan A. Backman has the experience and knowledge to help you stop the intrusion and collect damages.
