Employment Law/Wrongful Termination/Unemployment

Federal and state law on marijuana drug use
Illinois is an employment at-will state, which is defined as an employer can terminate you at any time for almost any reason. However, there are a few instances when a company termination or refusal to hire an employee is illegal. Wrongful dismissal and wrongful termination are the terms used to describe the situation when a company fires or lays off a worker in violation of a contract or in violation of the law.
