A Warning to Temporary Employees in the state of Illinois

In Illinois, if you are a temporary employee with an agency like X Personnel Service and you are assigned to work at say, a large insurance company, you can be harassed for your beliefs (or especially the lack of beliefs) by Insurance Company employees with impunity, and even have your temp assignment terminated because of your beliefs.

They can simply say you were "too slow" and "had a bad attitude" never having directly confronted you with any issues.

But, because you are NOT actually employed by the insurance company, but by X Personnel Service, the Illinois Human Rights Commission cannot do anything for you because you were not technically directly an employee of those who harassed you and caused you financial injury by having your assignment terminated.

They call it a "Juristdictional Issue."
