What is Considered Workplace Discrimination?
If you are part of a protected class under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act or under Oklahoma Civil Rights laws and have suffered mistreatment or been singled out due to your status, we can help. A claim can be filed on your behalf to seek legal remedies and to hold your employer accountable.
Many laws prohibit discrimination in the workplace, including the federal and state Civil Rights Acts mentioned above as well as the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act.
Under state and federal laws, employers are prohibited from discrimination based on:
- National origin
- Same sex
- Pregnancy and childbirth including violations of the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993
- Military status
Compensation for Workplace Discrimination Claims
Workers who have suffered discrimination may be able to seek legal remedies such as:
- compensatory damages,
- back pay,
- injunctive relief,
- attorneys’ fees,
- and punitive damages.
These damages will be based on the specifics of your individual case. At Mazaheri Law Firm, we work to find meaningful solutions that serve your short- and long-term interests while holding the employer liable for his or her actions. We are progressive advocates who understand the broad implications that a single case can have on other workers across the state and country.
