Portland Disability Discrimination Attorney
Oregon law prohibits employers from discriminating against employees because of their serious mental or physical health conditions. Many employees who do not think of themselves as “disabled” qualify for protection under the law and cannot be terminated, passed over for promotion or denied employment due to their medical condition.
Qualifying conditions are many and varied and may include:
- Back injuries
- Hearing or vision impairments
- Neurological impairments
- Drug/alcohol addiction
- Severe anxiety
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
In Portland, lawyer Eric Wilson and his team at Oregon Employment Law have successfully represented clients in disability discrimination cases for over 15 years. Eric is a passionate advocate for disabled employees in Oregon. If you suffered workplace discrimination because of your medical condition, Eric will help you take a stand against your former employer and will work to secure justice on your behalf.
Protecting Your Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Rights
The FMLA and the Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA), protect employees’ jobs when they need time off from work due to childbirth, treatment for their own serious illness or to help care for a family member suffering from serious illness. The law requires most employers to provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave and also prohibits employers from terminating employees who request medical leave.
Call Eric Wilson at Oregon Employment Law if your employer retaliated against you for requesting medical leave or unlawfully denied your request for medical leave.
Your Employer Must Accommodate You
Oregon employers are required to provide reasonable accommodations for employees who suffer from physical or mental disabilities. Contact Eric Wilson if your employer denied your request for a reasonable workplace accommodation or refused to respond to any such request.
