Tulsa Discrimination Lawyer

Work place discrimination is when a manager, supervisor or co-worker won't take "no" for an answer to sexual interest or stop comments, poor treatment and harassment based on race, sex, disability, age, on-the-job injury or pregnancy. Tim Gilpin is an experienced discrimination lawyer with over 28 years representing these clients on a contingency fee basis 

All too often, an injured worker is looked upon as disabled and fired. Or, a pregnant employee is looked upon as a liability and fired. Prejudices in the workplace as to race, nationality, religion and age are actionable issues that cry out for an experienced employment discrimination lawyer to help remedy. 

It's against the law to harass, fire or retaliate because of your race, sex, pregnancy, disability, age, job injury or because you filed a legitimate Worker's Compensation claim. Depending on the claim, it can be brought in state or federal court. Or, if the claim falls under U.S. Title VII, it must first be brought to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (within 300 days of offending act) or the Oklahoma Attorney General's Office (180 days of offending act). 

Generally, the law will provide for payment of back wages lost, future wages reasonably lost, emotional distress, benefits lost, pain and suffering that can be linked to the job loss and the resulting chaos in a family's life. 

For 28 years Gilpin Law Office has successfully represented people fired from their job due to race, sex, pregnancy, disability and workers' compensation claim. Clients have been reinstated to their job and/or received a substantial settlement or verdict in their favor.
