You have rights if you were fired over religious beliefs.
Video Transcribed: Hello, it’s me again, Earl Lawson unemployment expert attorney. I am back, at least I’m making this video to let you know that if you’re fired, doesn’t necessarily mean that you don’t get unemployed benefits. Now, if you’re working in a job that you were working for quite some time, and at the beginning of this job, your boss said you don’t have to work Sundays and you said that’s good because I can’t work Sundays, my religion doesn’t let me do that. He had ample notice at that point that you had religious reasons for not working on Sunday.
Now, if some time goes by your employer says, okay, we’re going to work on Sunday and you’re included in on this, you start this Sunday, you can quit that job, because your contract had changed to the point that it was no longer feasible for you to work that job.
Now, whenever you file claim for unemployment benefits they should approve them, but if they don’t, that’s when you appeal the decision, but according to the statutes of Oklahoma you can collect unemployment benefits. It’s simple as that.
Because your contract with the employer was changed in such a way that it interfered with your religious beliefs, and that is a good reason to quit. Now that’s what they call good cause. If you want to look at your unemployment notification, it says quit voluntarily without good cause, no you had good cause. Let me fight for that.
