FEIS GOLDY Wins Jury Trial in Retaliation Case

In March 2014, FEIS GOLDY won a six-figure jury verdict in favor of its client in a retaliation case brought under the Illinois Whistleblower Act, 740 ILCS 174/15, and the common law of retaliatory discharge in Illinois state court. The plaintiff, a long-term director of a day care center, was terminated after reporting the day care center and its owner to the Department of Children and Family Services (“DCFS”) for violating DCFS rules for the protection of children.
