Edmond Employment Discrimination Attorney

Find the right Employment Discrimination attorney in Edmond, OK

Laws have been passed under both Oklahoma and federal governments which prohibit discriminating on the basis of specified protected characteristics. In Edmond, government and private organizations can be held liable for discrimination, depending on what type of trait the unfair treatment was initially based on.

How Does Employment Discrimination Occur?

If an employee is a member of a legally protected class and their employer treats them unfairly because of that, the employer will be held liable for employment discrimination. Traits that employers can not use to evaluate you include race, national origin, gender, religion and familial status. Plaintiffs in Edmond, Oklahoma are required to show that their employer treated them unfairly due to their protected status in order to prevail on an employment discrimination claim.

How can Employment Discrimination be Proven in Oklahoma?

This can be proved when there is a history of the employer treating members of the class similarly, or if witnesses testify about the employer's statements which would constitute bias as understood by a reasonable person. Moreover, employers may be held liable for firing someone or retaliating against them because they brought a discrimination lawsuit.

Because it involves filing a claim with particular agencies, the procedure for pursuing employment discrimination claims can be complicated. An Edmond, Oklahoma attorney can help you file on time, as well as pursue any further remedies that may be available to you while your case is pending.
