A Medical Office Manager Fires People Unfairly

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about Office Manager authority to fire:

There is a doctors office in our town that has a nurse that does all of the firing and hiring. As soon as the new employee get her first pay increase, the Nurse finds something wrong with their work and orders her terminated. I have watched this happen since 1993. I even brought it to the Doctor owner and he just said that he will look in to it.

The only thing that I notice is that the subject Nurse is extremely nice to me and my wife but, that so wears off and she finds reason to have us come in for additional office visits to get prescriptions authorized, even though we had just recently been in for a check up, and so on. Other than changing doctors, is there any recourse for such treatment of employees in Illinois?
