Wrongful termination occurs when an employer dismisses an employee based on an employee's membership within a protected class (race, religion, gender, age, etc.) If you believe you were fired for an unlawful reason, you may be able to file a wrongful termination claim against your former employee. This process can be challenging and involve complicated legal proceedings and that is why you need an experienced LaCourse Law attorney.
Oklahoma is an “At-Will” employment state meaning that unless you and your employer have an employment contract that states otherwise, you employer can terminate you at any time for any reason. However, this does not include termination of your sex, age, race, national origin, or religion. Many of bad employers will use a “fake reason” to terminate you even though they did so because of your class.
This conduct is illegal as well as immoral. Although it may be difficult to prove, it is still in your best interest to speak with a wrongful termination attorney at LaCourse Law to evaluate your case. We are prepared to fight on your behalf in your employment litigation. We are prepared to go to court if necessary.
