Oklahoma City Attorneys Fight Wrongful Termination
Protecting workers throughout Oklahoma from employers’ discrimination and retaliation
State and federal employment laws protect employees from various adverse actions taken by employers in violation of workers’ statutory rights. These laws cover reassignment, denial of promotion, harassment, wrongful termination and other actions. At Ryan Bisher Ryan & Simons, we provide legal representation for these types of wrongful termination cases:
- Injured workers wrongfully terminated after filing a workers' compensation claim
- Workers wrongfully terminated based on discrimination
Our firm believes that workers should never be intimidated in an attempt to prevent them from exercising their rights. We fight vigorously for fair treatment in the workplace and full compensation for illegal retaliation against workers who exercise their rights. If you have been wrongfully terminated from your job for an illegal reason, you may be entitled to reinstatement and/or damages. Our success rate for handling these cases is outstanding.
Wrongful termination and workers' compensation claims
Employers are usually not happy about their workers filing for workers’ compensation, since an accumulation of claims can drive up their insurance premiums. But it is illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee for filing. In Oklahoma, employees cannot be discharged from a job for filing a workers' compensation claim or for hiring an attorney to help with a claim. Additionally, an employer cannot terminate an employee solely because the person is absent from work while temporarily or totally disabled.
Fighting wrongful termination based on illegal discrimination
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of:
Workers who are terminated for any of the above reasons, or are so harassed that they have no choice but to quit, can file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or a civil lawsuit for damages.
