Q: I was terminated at my work place after 16 years of employment through them. The last 3 months I worked I started having

Health issues with swelling. Some of the swelling was in my gut. Let me add this I am a female and work with all men for these 16 years. My main supervisor started to notice my gut and proceeded to make pregnancy comments (even though he has known I was gay the entire time I worked there) He also knew I had been suffering from something health wise but still made daily comments about me looking 3 to 6 months pregnant. So now they have terminated me on an excessive absence reason but my file should have all proof of that if that's what they claim which is a lie. I need help. There is so much more than just this. Just don't know what angle to go at I gave them the last 16 years of my life and not sure how to go about it. Thank you in advance

A: You should contact an Oklahoma employment attorney to discuss your situation in more detail. While more information is needed here, you should reach out regarding claims for disability discrimination and/or sex discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
