Count On Our Aggressive Employment Law Attorney

Getting fired from your job can be a traumatic experience. If you believe you have been fired in error and want to fight it, be prepared to provide an event timeline that led up to your firing. Providing the dates and incidences, witnesses and any other evidence is important to complete the Oklahoma state complaint process, the first step to pursuing a wrongful termination claim. You will need to begin with the state, and if the state decides not to pursue the case, you will be issued a "right to sue" letter.

Pursuing a wrongful termination claim can be a long and frustrating matter without the help of an experienced lawyer in your corner. You have rights as an employee, however your boss may attempt to intimidate you into giving them up. You may have a right to file a claim for:

  • Lost wages
  • Lost benefits
  • Emotional distress
  • Punitive damages

Sexual Harassment On The Job?

Sexual harassment on the job is unacceptable and illegal. Your employer needs to have a clear sexual harassment policy posted in compliance with federal and state discrimination and harassment laws prohibiting all unwanted sexual conduct on the job.

Employees and employers of all sizes are expected to follow the law prohibiting workplace behaviors such as:

  • Any sexual behavior considered intimidating or producing a hostile workplace
  • Verbal or physical gender-based bullying
  • Unwanted physical or verbal sexual advances
  • Unwanted sexual comments, teasing or jokes
  • Unwelcome touching or requests for sexual favors or massages
  • Inappropriate sexual innuendos and visual displays, such as pornographic pictures

If you have ever felt that keeping your job depended on tolerating harassment, this is also considered sexual harassment. You may also file a claim for sexual harassment if your supervisor or manager decided not to give you a promotion or a raise because you did not put up with sexual harassment in the workplace.
