Chuhak & Tecson principals Ryan Haas and David Tecson author book chapter on employment law

Chuhak & Tecson principals Ryan Haas and David Tecson, of the firm’s employment, litigation and healthcare groups, have authored a chapter of the most recent edition of “Employment Discrimination,” a comprehensive guide to Illinois and federal employment law.

Published by the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education, “Employment Discrimination” is a resource for employment attorneys, employers and employees for evaluating and approaching claims of discrimination in the workplace. The publication provides updates and analyses of employment discrimination issues including race, sex, age, religion and disability.

IICLE is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting the professional development of Illinois attorneys through Illinois-focused practice guidance. The contribution of Ryan Haas and David Tecson, as well as the publication’s other authors, was volunteer-based.

Ryan Haas concentrates his practice in litigation of employment and healthcare matters in both state and federal court. He represents healthcare organizations, businesses, not-for-profit organizations and individuals on numerous employment issues, including discrimination, wage and hour matters, and physician contract disputes. Ryan represents clients in front of many agencies, including the Illinois Department of Labor and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

David Tecson frequently provides employment counseling and guidance to management. His clients include hospital systems, physician groups, schools and manufacturers. David focuses on legal compliance, training for human resources professionals and other guidance designed to prevent claims before they are filed. When necessary, David has litigated and tried cases before the U.S. District Court, multiple state courts, the Illinois Human Rights Commission, the Illinois Department of Human Rights and other administrative agencies. He is also admitted to practice before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth and Seventh Circuits.
