At Hasbrook & Hasbrook, our Oklahoma City employment attorneys are dedicated to protecting employee rights and seeking compensation for workers who have been mistreated by employers. These types of cases can involve wrongful termination, age discrimination, disability discrimination, race discrimination, sexual harassment, gender or sexual discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and other employment matters. If you believe that you or someone you love has been mistreated by an employer, we are here to assist you.
