LGBT, Same-Sex And Gender Discrimination Claims In Oklahoma
In the state of Oklahoma, it can be challenging to seek same-sex discrimination lawsuits, requiring skilled representation that understands standing employment laws. Even though sexual orientation is not formally recognized as a protected status itself in Oklahoma, the harassment and discrimination that may occur often breach laws surrounding gender discrimination.
Gender stereotyping occurs when an employer acts upon or treats employees according to stereotypical ideas about how a certain gender should act or work. This includes lumping certain behaviors together as "heterosexual" or "homosexual." If it can be shown that gender stereotyping has been committed by the employer and it has adversely affected the employee in the workplace, a claim may be available to hold the employer accountable.
We approach the situation from this angle and are able to deliver results, categorizing the behaviors as sexual/gender stereotyping and other illegal treatment.
If you feel that you are being discriminated against because of your sexual orientation, we can help. Our employment attorneys will take the time to listen to you and understand the conditions in which you are working. We are highly experienced in handling these matters and can tie the discrimination back to protected statuses.
