Harassment & Discrimination

Harassment & Discrimination

You need your job and work hard to support yourself, your family and to get ahead. Few things are more humiliating and devastating to a family and career than being fired because of your race, sex, pregnancy, a disability, your age or because you had a work injury and were off recuperating or had a Family Medical Leave due to your serious medical condition or that of an immediate family member or the birth or adoption of a child.

Sex

Being treated with no respect at work based on sex is infuriating and wrong. Work place discrimination is when a manager, supervisor or co-worker won’t take “no” for an answer to sexual advances or stop offensive sex related comments. It includes poor treatment, harassment or retaliation because you said “no” to any intimate contact or sexual interest. Tim Gilpin is an experienced discrimination lawyer with 34+ years helping clients on a contingency fee basis, with a free, up front, consultation.

Disability

All too often, an injured or disabled worker is looked down on, harassed and/or fired. When all they needed was a reasonable accommodation to do the job. Or, an employer treats an able worker as disabled because of an injury or condition that doesn’t stop the employee from doing his/her job. It’s against the law to harass, fire or retaliate because of a disability or because your boss views you as disabled. If you can do your job, without an accommodation or with a reasonable accommodation, you should not be harassed or fired. If the claim falls under U.S. Title VII, you only have 300 days to file the first step complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission; 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.

Pregnancy

It should never happen, but it does, in local and big corporations. A pregnant employee should be supported in the work place, but often she is looked down on as disabled or a liability, then harassed and fired because of the pregnancy and coming child. It’s breaks the law to harass, fire or retaliate because of sex and pregnancy and, the need for some time off work after the birth of a child. You should not be treated different, harassed or fired because of a pregnancy and coming child. And, if you have time saved up to take off work, or eligible for Family Medical Leave, taking time off work after your child’s birth shouldn’t count against you or your career. But, be aware, this claim falls under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, and/or Title VII sex discrimination, and you only have 300 days to file the first step complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission; 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.

Tim has successfully represented people fired due to pregnancy. Clients have been reinstated to their job and/or received substantial settlements or verdict in their favor.

Tim Gilpin is a wonderful lawyer with great negotiation skills. I felt very well taken care of during a very difficult and stressful time. Any time I called or emailed with a question or concern, it was responded to very quickly and this has not been my experience with other law firms I have used in the past. Tim Gilpin’s exceptional knowledge and skill contributed to me being a very satisfied client. I’m very happy I chose Gilpin Law for legal representation.

After a car accident and difficulties with the insurance company, we went to Gilpin Law to help get it settled. Mr. Gilpin handled our case quickly and professionally, with a positive outcome. We highly recommend Gilpin Law Firm!

Great lawyer

Due to reckless drivers over the years I've had to use Tim Gilpin more than once but I can certainly attest that he is one of the best around. He is competent, through, diligent and knows the law & how insurance companies operate! Once he's on the case I know that I have nothing to worry about other than healing. Something he insists on (your health and healing). I have referred others to him as well over the years - I too was fortunate to be referred by a friend that swears by him. He's definitely the lawyer to have if you ever are involved in an auto wreck!
