Taking Employment Rights Seriously

Everyone deserves to feel safe at work and free from the threat of discrimination or harassment. Federal law and Oregon state law protect employees in every industry from their employers' discrimination and retaliation.

 

Kim & Cook Law defends the rights of employees against

discriminatory practices, due process violations and other

employment issues. In every employment case, our firm 

strives to make our clients feel that they are more than

just another case file. We understand how stressful and

upsetting these situations can be, and if we are unable to

assist with a certain matter, we will work to point you in

the right direction.

We are equally dedicated to advising employers on best employment practices to reduce the likelihood of costly litigation.

Standing Up Against Discriminatory Employment Practices

Discrimination can come in many different forms, from getting passed over for a promotion or being denied additional training, to perpetuating or ignoring reports of a hostile work environment.

Federal law prohibits discrimination based on"protected classes," including but not limited to:

  • Race

  • Age

  • Disability

  • Religion

  • Sex

  • National origin

In addition, Oregon's state law protects you against discrimination or retaliation based on sexual orientation and marital status. Sexual harassment is considered a form of sex discrimination, meaning you have the same protections as above. It is unlawful for an employer to retaliate against you for reporting sexual harassment in the workplace.

We will work with employees or employers to ensure rights against discrimination are protected.
