How does Illinois Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First of all, employers in the city of Mount Prospect may be required to implement company policies with regards to sexual harassment and post these in a visible location so that employees may be informed. These policies may include contact information for an employee to report sexual harassment, the procedure for handling such claims, and the corrective measures for when a claim is proven.

Illinois and federal laws appointed agencies that process claims involving sexual harassment. They have the authority to investigate Mount Prospect workplaces regarding the conduct alleged in the complaints that have been filed with them.
