Oklahoma City Workplace Retaliation Defense Attorneys
A whistleblower is anyone who has reported illegal activity on the part of his or her employer. It could also include reporting requests by the employer for him or her to engage in illegal activity. These are often highly egregious practices within the company or unethical decisions made by management. It could also include smaller infractions, such as requiring a driver to continue driving even though a taillight is out.
What Is Retaliation?
Retaliation occurs when the employer proceeds to take adverse action against the employee for reporting concerns of discrimination, harassment, or other illegal activity. Retaliation claims can extend to include relationships between spouses or partners. For instance, if a wife brings a sexual harassment claim and the husband is fired in retaliation, a claim could be filed against the company.
Our attorneys will take a close look at your situation, evaluating all circumstances involved, and provide you with a clear understanding of your legal rights and options. We will carefully and thoroughly investigate the retaliation, preparing a solid case against your employer.

Oklahoma is an At-will employment state, which means that employers can fire workers for any reason, or no reason, with a few exceptions. Employers are not allowed to terminate an employee for reporting an employer's unlawful conduct, such as incidents of discrimination in the workplace. A whistleblower is anyone who has reported illegal activity on the part of his or her employer. It could also include reporting requests by the employer for him or her to engage in illegal activity. These are often highly egregious practices within the company or unethical decisions made by management.
It could also include smaller infractions, such as requiring a driver to continue driving even though a taillight is out or something larger, including:
- Filing a discrimination claim
- Filing a wage and hour claim
- Filing a whistleblower claim
- Filing a workers' compensation claim
- Reporting sexual harassment
- Taking valid medical leave under the FMLA

If an employer has taken an adverse action against you for these activities, the first thing you should do is report it to your company's HR. If no action is being taken to correct the situation, talk to an employment retaliation lawyer about your legal remedies.
