A: If you're facing harassment and discrimination at your workplace in Illinois, there are steps you can take to address the issue. You may want to document instances of harassment, including dates, times, and details of what occurred. Check if your employer has a specific policy on reporting harassment and follow the prescribed procedures. If the harassment continues, you may consider filing a complaint with the Illinois Department of Human Rights or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
