Oklahoma City Workplace

Retaliation Lawyer


 

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 tail light is out.

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.
