Discrimination is the workforce is taken seriously by law and by Illinois attorneys. In October of this year, a $250,000 settlement was reached for a police officer who claimed that he had been harassed and discriminated against because of his race. The police officer also claimed that others in his department had retaliated against him after he complained.

According to a report on, the police officer initially became aware that the department had targeted Latino drivers in the area when issuing tickets shortly after he was hired as a patrolman in 2009.

The officer tried to address this issue by asking the department to create a “Hispanic mobile outreach”; however allegations in the suit say that the department refused his request. The officer claimed that soon after, he likewise became victim to discrimination and harassment in his department.

Other claims that were made in the suit included unfair workers’ compensation treatment, threats, and lack of support while the officer needed onsite assistance.
