An Administrative Law Judge from the Illinois Human Rights Commission issued a recommended decision and order in favor of the Village of Hazel Crest Police Department in a retaliation claim brought by an African-American sergeant. Tom Weiler and Theresa Bresnahan-Coleman presented evidence at public hearing before the Commission proving that the deputy chief’s decisions were not in retaliation for the sergeant’s filing an EEOC charge and that there were legitimate reasons for denying the sergeant’s requested schedule change and placing him on an involuntary leave of absence. The Illinois Department of Human Rights had earlier dismissed two additional claims filed by the sergeant alleging race discrimination and disability discrimination for suspension of his police powers on motions filed by Tom.
