Chicago Sexual Harassment By College Professors
So you are attending college in Chicago and classes seem to be going well. The professor seems very helpful and often asks you to discuss various things after class. You thought it was a little odd but really didn't think much about out. But now the professor is asking you out on a date and you thank him but say no. Now your grades seem to be affected and you don't know what to do. Well in Illinois you have protection from sexual harassment while you are attending a college or university. So what should you do and how best should you proceed?
Well you should contact a good employment lawyer and file a complaint with the Illinois Department of Human RIghts ("IDHR"). The reason you should do this at once is because there are strict time limits for filing and sometimes colleges will drag an investigation out past the statute of limitations period. You could get money for the tuition you paid, money for emotional distress, attorney fees and money to additionally make you whole. Remember that you don't have to take sexual harassment from a college professor in Chicago.
