Equal Opportunity Laws - Oklahoma City
Federal Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws date back to the days of the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s, with laws continuing to be considered even today. EEO laws are designed to prohibit job discrimination and provide equal opportunity for people of all backgrounds in the workplace.
It is illegal for employers to discriminate during any aspect of employment, including hiring and firing; transfer, promotion, layoff, or recall; compensation, assignment, or classification of employees; job advertisements; recruitment; testing; use of company facilities; training and apprenticeship programs; pay, retirement plans, and disability leave; fringe benefits; or other terms and conditions of employment.
Equal opportunity laws may be violated based on a person’s race, national origin, color, religion, sex, disability, age, or any other legitimate factor. If you have suffered because of an employer’s discriminatory practices or violation of Oklahoma EEO laws, it is important to know your legal rights. A highly regarded and understanding EEO lawyer from Atkins & Markoff can help you fight for justice and for the compensation you deserve.
