Tulsa Wrongful Termination Lawyer
A “wrongful termination” under the law is when someone is fired because of race, sex, disability, age, pregnancy, religion, ethnic or national background. Or, because you filed a legitimate Workers’ Compensation claim, were absent from work while temporary totally disabled. Or, because you “blew the whistle” on an employer’s actions that threatened public safety. Gilpin Law Office represents these client on a contingency fee basis.
When an employment termination happens due to one of these reasons, a claim may be filed in state or federal court. Or, if the action is covered in U.S. Title VII, a “charge of discrimination” must first be filed with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (300 days of the offending action) or, in Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office (180 days
of the offending action).
Generally, the law will proivde 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 over 30 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.
