We hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday season.

New Illinois Law: Reasonable Accommodation for Pregnant Workers

On January 1, 2015, a new law, amending the Illinois Human Rights Act is set to take effect that will extend certain protections to pregnant workers in Illinois. What is a “reasonable accommodation” you might ask?  Continue to the article to understand how this affects your business and what changes you will need to make as an employer.

Carlson Dash recently achieved a very successful result in a hotly contested bankruptcy case. Our client was able to achieve a recovery it thought impossible when the case was initially filed. At the conclusion of our case, a Naperville, IL business owner was charged with failing to pay over $1.3 million in taxes.

Achieving this result in the face of such crushing tax liabilities was remarkable. We are proud of all the hard work our team has done to have won this case and we also would like to point out the importance of cases such as these as tax evasion not only affects the IRS, but has a trickle-down effect and negatively impacts the community, state and individual taxpayers.
