What we do.
Discrimination includes being treated less favorably because of a protected class, such as a person's race, sex, gender, age, disability, religion, national origin, or military status.
Harassment includes being subjected to threats, demands, slurs, jokes, or bullying because of a person's protected class, such as a person's race, sex, gender, age, disability, religion, national origin, or military status.
Retaliation can take many forms, such as being fired, demoted, a negative performance review, lowering your wages, or other adverse action as a result of reporting discrimination, harassment, not being paid your owed wages, or other violations of state or federal law.
Wrongful Termination involves being fired because you reported discrimination or harassment in the workplace, reported violations of federal or state law, or because you are a member of a protected class, such as a person's race, sex, gender, age, disability, religion, national origin, or military status.
Generally, employers have a duty to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with known disabilities. Similarly, employers are required to provide employees with a serious medical condition leave to treat or care for their serious medical condition or that of a family member. Not all employers are required to provide accommodations. Certain protections depend on the size of the employer.
Employees in Oregon must be paid no less than minimum wage for all time worked. With some limited exceptions, employees must also be paid overtime for time worked over 40 hours each work week. If you are fired, your employer is required to pay you your final wages by the end of the next business day. Other time limitations apply if you quit providing notice or no notice. If your employer did not pay you on time, you may be owed penalty wages.
