The Legal Defense You Need Against Accusations Of Discrimination

What Constitutes Discrimination?
Discrimination comes in many forms. Typically, discrimination allegations involve refusal to hire, refusal to promote, disciplinary action, wrongful termination, harassment, hostile work environment and retaliation.
Discrimination must result in an adverse employment action or consequence, such as termination. The alleged discrimination must also be a motivating factor or the substantial factor in the employer’s adverse employment decision. A partial list of civil rights discrimination protected classes include:
- National origin
- Sexual orientation
- Workers’ compensation recipient
- Genetic testing
We can defend Oregon employers and employers throughout the United States with a presence in Oregon against discrimination lawsuits. We can also protect you if you are being investigated by the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) or the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) for alleged civil rights discrimination.
