EMPLOYMENT LAWS FOR THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA AND THROUGHOUT THE U.S.
It is unlawful for an employer to make any hiring, promotions, demotions, discipline or firing decisions based on:
- National origin
- Physical limitations
- Mental disability
Federal laws offer protection from harassment and discrimination. It is your employer’s responsibility to maintain a work environment that is nondiscriminatory. Your employer can be held accountable for other employee’s actions if the employer is aware of circumstances that could suggest harassment or discrimination.
TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT IN OK
Oklahoma is an “at-will” employment state. “At-will” means that the employer or the employee can terminate the employment relationship for any reason. One exception to this law is when an employment contract is established between the employer and employee that limits the employer’s ability to terminate the employee at any given time. In addition, an employer may not fire anyone for illegal reasons such as:
- Discrimination for age, race or gender
- Retaliation towards the employee for filing a complaint against the employer for discrimination, harassment, workers’ compensation or unsafe work environment
- Discharge for taking family leave or military leave
If you have been wrongfully terminated, seek the counsel of an employment law attorney at Foshee & Yaffe Attorneys at Law. Our lawyers are well-versed in Oklahoma’s employment laws. We will protect your rights.
