in illinois we have the wage reclamation act. we are awaiting the nlrb ruling which appears to be highly favorable for reinstatement . Can we or should we be filing charges (for wages and benefits loss) before the ruling to expedite the process and bring a rapid resolve to this conflict? it has been discussed of the potential of suing for lost wages, benefits etc. plus incurred costs due to insurance or lack of and out of pocket expenses. Currently for each employee it is $32,000 in wages insurance and pension 14,500 this amount goes up per month this has been 6 months since discharge.
