It can sometimes be difficult to determine if you have been discriminated against at work or not. Some forms of discrimination are more subtle, so you really have to pay attention. Any negative actions taken against you due to your national origin, race, age, gender, or other protected class may be considered discrimination. For example, if you are a woman and have been denied multiple promotions over male employees with similar qualifications, you may have experienced discrimination. Likewise, if coworkers have been making jokes about your age, that can be considered discrimination.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires employers to provide employees with reasonable accommodations so that they can do their jobs properly. Therefore, if you request an accommodation that won’t cause your employer undue hardship, they should be able to provide it. For instance, a cashier who suffered an injury and can’t stand for long periods of time may be given a chair. If your employer is refusing to provide you with reasonable accommodations, you should contact a Tulsa employment lawyer.
Oklahoma is an at-will state, so employers can terminate employees without a good reason. However, if you were fired because of an illegal reason, you may have a viable wrongful termination claim. For example, if you were fired because you blew the whistle on your employer’s illegal activities, you can file a wrongful termination claim. If you believe that you were fired solely due to your religion, you may also have a claim.
Yes, you may have a viable claim. Unfortunately, some employers may try to get away with not paying their employees for all the hours they worked. Some of the tactics are obvious and some of them may be more subtle. For instance, you may be an hourly employee and your employer asked you to come in early for a meeting and doesn’t pay you for the meeting time. In this instance, you may have a wage and hour dispute.
Age discrimination is prevalent in workplaces in the U.S. Although providing age discrimination can be challenging, it isn’t impossible. To have a viable claim, you will need to provide documentation. That’s why you should keep careful track of comments and behaviors that indicate age discrimination. For example, if a co-worker made a joke about how you’re performing your job too slowly because you’re older, you should write down the person’s name, when the incident occurred, and exactly what was said.
