employment

Are you being treated unfairly at work? Are you being sexually harassed or bullied? Are you concerned that your employer is getting ready to fire you even though you have been a faithful and dedicated employee with a good work ethic? Businesses regularly seek legal advice regarding employment matters. You need an experienced employment lawyer to help level the playing field. You have important employment related legal rights but working people usually need to take appropriate actions to enforce their rights. Do not wait until your job has been terminated before seeking legal counsel.

We have successfully represented many clients in cases involving:

Sexual Harassment
Gender Discrimination
Age Discrimination
Racial Discrimination
Pregnancy Discrimination
National Origin
Family and Medical Leave
Disability Accommodation
Whistleblowing
Religious Discrimination

We also regularly help clients with employment issues related to:

Wage and Hour Claims
Overtime Pay
Non-timely Payment of Wages
Employment Contracts
Independent Contractor Agreements
Covenants Not to Compete
Confidentiality Provisions
Severance Agreements
Defamatory Statements

For 30 years, we have helped clients in Oregon who have been treated unfairly or discriminated against in the workplace or that have been subjected to retaliatory conduct because they have complained about it. There are often strict deadlines or time limitations which must be complied with. The sooner you seek legal assistance the better. Employment disputes are generally too complex to analyze in a phone conversation. If you are considering a consultation with an attorney, you may call for a free telephone interview. We charge a fee for most employment related office consultations where we spend at least an hour with the client analyzing potential claims. There is no consultation charge if your job has been terminated and your former employer has not paid all the wages or compensation owed to you within the time limits imposed by the applicable state law.
