Oklahoma City Gender Discrimination Attorneys
We Fight for Your Rights as an Employee
At Mazaheri Law Firm, we strive to stand up for your rights as an employee, including when you face gender-based discrimination at work in Oklahoma City and its surrounding areas. The two main types of gender discrimination are those against women and sexual minorities. Laws may protect all genders’ rights for a safe and supportive work environment. Gender anti-discrimination policies can include biological sex, gender identity, and gender expression. They also protect pregnant workers.
Gender discrimination causes negative consequences on your employment, including your wages, work conditions, job duties and responsibilities, and promotability. It can also take the form of sexual harassment or lead to termination of your current position.
If your employer or prospective employer discriminates against you on the basis of gender, this is a violation of your rights, and you have legal solutions to seek compensation. Our team is dedicated to reviewing your situation and finding an appropriate course of action.

Federal and State Gender Discrimination Laws
Three federal laws address gender discrimination for private and public companies and organizations of 15 employees or more:
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex
- The Equal Pay Act, which prohibits paying women differently than men
- The Pregnancy Discrimination Act, which protects pregnant workers
The state of Oklahoma does not have statutes about discrimination due to gender identity or sexual orientation. However, Oklahoma City provides nondiscrimination policies that prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation for city employees.
Your Legal Options Against Gender Discrimination in Oklahoma
If your gender discrimination falls under the jurisdiction of Title VII, you may file a federal lawsuit with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, also known as EEOC, to seek compensation. The EEOC requires that you file your lawsuit within 180 days after the date of the incident.
When you trust us with your gender discrimination case, our attorneys carefully review your situation to determine what strategy meets your needs and goals. Our compassionate lawyers offer a safe space in which you can share what you have experienced, and we are committed to helping you gain the compensation you deserve.
Our detailed understanding of state and federal employment law ensures that we file your lawsuit within the mandatory timeframe. We know how to effectively negotiate to make sure you receive proper compensation for the difficulties you have encountered.
Reparations for gender discrimination can include:
- Reinstatement of employment
- Attorney fees
- Back pay
- Coverage of associated medical expenses
- Financial compensation for emotional distress
- Punitive damages for your employer’s illegal conduct
