Employment Law

 

We represent businesses/employers and employees.

 

We are experienced in assisting clients with claims of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation based upon the following protected classifications:

 

bullet Race
bullet Gender (including sexual harassment and pregnancy discrimination)
bullet Religion
bullet Disability
bullet Status as an injured worker (worker’s compensation discrimination)
bullet Age
bullet Family Medical Leave Act/Oregon Family Leave Act use

We enjoy assisting both employees and employers with the evaluation, mediation, litigation, and settlement of employment discrimination claims.  We will evaluate claims for employees who believe they have been treated differently by their employer due to one of the reasons listed above.  We can also assist employers with the defense of such claims.  We also assist employers with drafting policies and troubleshooting possible employment disputes. We strive to provide our clients with practical advice, to achieve resolution as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.  

 

 

We represent our clients before the Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and in Oregon state and federal courts.

 

We counsel both businesses/employers and employees regarding compliance with state and federal wage laws.  We can assist employees who are being paid less than the required minimum wage, have not received appropriate break time or overtime pay, or are not paid timely upon termination.  We can also counsel employers regarding changes in the law to ensure appropriate compensation and avoid clams for penalty wages.  We will also provide capable and cost-effective representation to employers and employees in the litigation of these claims, if necessary.

 

 

General Business Advising

 

We advise our business clients with a variety of issues.  We enjoy drafting employee handbooks and policies that meet our clients’ needs.  We advise clients on employee relations and compliance with applicable laws to avoid potential claims.  We also assist with negotiating and settling contract disputes, and will litigate breaches of contract if necessary.  We strive to respond promptly and cost-effectively to meet the needs of the businesses we represent.

 

 

Civil Litigation

 

We represent our clients in all Oregon state courts and federal courts, as well as before administrative agencies.  We handle a wide variety of cases involving business and individual disputes, including employment-related matters, shareholder disputes, breach of contract actions, defamation claims, and a variety of other civil litigation matters.  We are licensed to appear in Oregon state court and the Ninth Circuit Federal Court.
