CAIR-Chicago Staff Attorney Represents Muslim Man
in Employment Discrimination Case



CAIR-Chicago Staff Attorney Rima Kapitan represented a Muslim man in a status hearing regarding an employment discrimination case against the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA). During the hearing, the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) stated that she would soon issue a decision regarding whether she would consolidate the man’s present case with other charges he filed against the CTA, still under investigation.

The Muslim man filed charges of discrimination against the CTA with the Illinois Department of Human Rights (IDHR) after having been passed up for promotions for nearly two decades. The man has always had a good work record with the CTA, and has no other reason to believe that the CTA is not discriminating against him. After conducting an investigation, the IDHR found that the CTA was discriminating against him in at least one of the charges. The man was given a right to sue for the other two charges after the IDHR’s statutorily allotted time to investigate the charges had lapsed.

CAIR-Chicago will continue to represent the man in this matter.
