Our Labor & Employment Practice Group authored the Illinois Chamber of Commerce’s Illinois Guide to Hiring and Firing. The publication is the latest addition to the Illinois Chamber’s HR Compliance Library. “It is with great pride that SmithAmundsen was selected by the Illinois Chamber to create what we believe is one of the most practical day-to-day resources an employer can rely on when managing the most critical areas of the employment process,” said Jeffrey Risch, Chair of SmithAmundsen’s Labor & Employment Practice Group and Lead Author and Chief Editor of the guide.

To help employers avoid costly errors, the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and SmithAmundsen’s labor and employment attorneys composed The Illinois Guide to Hiring and Firing. It is the most USER-FRIENDLY, NON-LEGALESE GUIDEBOOK on this subject. The 178-page guide is designed to help employers avoid the numerous legal traps in the process of interviewing, hiring, disciplining and terminating employees. It is written to be one of the most comprehensive labor and employment law reference guides for employers to use when managing the confusing multitude of issues surrounding the tasks of hiring and firing employees on a local and national basis.

The Illinois Chamber of Commerce is the state’s oldest, largest broad-based business advocacy group whose mission is to unify the voice for business in Illinois. For more information on the Illinois Chamber, visit their website
