You have a right to work in a harassment-free work environment. A Portland harassment attorney can help enforce your rights.
An employer may never allow you to be harassed with your sex (including sexual harassment), race, religion, age, disability, national origin and other protected classes, as a factor in the harassment. The laws and rules are set at both the state (Oregon) and federal level. BOLI (Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries) issues rules regarding state law. The EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) issues rules regarding federal law.
This means your employer may never allow a hostile, intimidating or abusive work environment. This workplace environment is also known as a hostile work environment. If a hostile work environment occurs, you should consult a Portland harassment attorney.
Is your work environment hostile, intimidating or abusive? Is one factor:
- sexual harassment (including sexual comments, touching or demands),
- sexual orientation,
- disability, or
- national origin?
If so, you are entitled to enforce your rights. And, in some cases, your Employer may require you to report the unlawful conduct.
Please know that this is a guide and not a complete list. Please also know that each case is unique which is why it is so important for you to immediately contact a professional such as a workplace harassment lawyer at our employment law group.
