More than a third of fired Illinoisans have once been fired or let go for unfair reasons. The Secure Jobs Act rethinks Illinois' at-will employment toward fair and transparent employment practices because no one wants to be fired on a whim. We are making job security real in 4 ways:
- Giving employees the opportunity to improve work performance before firing
- Banning constructive discharge—including a reduction in hours, demotion, or action on behalf of the employer that creates a hostile, uncomfortable, or unfair work environment.
- Putting the human back in management with limits on electronic monitoring (e.g. movement tracking, productivity tracking devices, etc.) in decisions relating to discipline and discharge
- Providing severance pay for those fired to ease financial burden
