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:
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.
