A Portland discrimination lawyer can hold discriminators responsible. Who can be held responsible?:
Under Oregon law:
(1) the employer; and
(2) supervisors, managers, co-workers and third parties who aided the discrimination (in some circumstances).
Under Federal law:
(1) the employer.
Others may also be held responsible depending on a case-by-case basis. A Portland discrimination lawyer can help evaluate who, in your case, can be held responsible.
Some employers require that an employee who has witnessed discrimination or believes discrimination is occurring must make a report. If a report is not made, some employer policies say that the employee who did not make the report may be punished for not reporting possible discrimination.
Under both Oregon and Federal law, it is unlawful for an employer to take consequence against an employee who reports, in good-faith, possible discrimination or believes that discrimination is occurring.
Many employees are fearful of reporting discrimination even if their employer says they must make the report. For instance, some employees are concerned that if they report possible discrimination that they will get in trouble with the employer or supervisors, managers or co-workers. We regularly represent employees who are facing this dilemma – to report or not report. Each situation should be professionally evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
In addition to calling, you can also reach a Portland discrimination lawyer through the Bullman Law Firm, Attorney For Workers website.
