Clear, Confident Help To Solve Your Legal Problems

As An Employee, You Have Rights

Everyone deserves a safe and respectful workplace. When that is compromised, it’s important to remember that you have rights. The trauma of suffering harm at work and the reality that your employer is not going to come to your defense can feel devastating. However, both state and federal law provide strong safeguards for workers, ensuring they can ask for damages when unlawful behavior occurs.

The attorneys of Employment Law Professionals have worked with clients throughout Oregon and California who are going through difficult workplace situations. We also represent small-business employers, so we can provide you with a 360-degree view of your employment situation. We can help you understand your options. We proudly support unions and represent union members in disputes.

If You Were Wronged At Work, We Can Help

Our attorneys have a broad range of experience in employment law. We have helped clients with disputes that include the following situations:

  • Discrimination at work
  • Harassment and hostile work environment claims
  • Violation of wage and hour laws
  • Wrongful termination from a position
  • Firefighters, police, EMTs, paramedics, doctors and corrections officers who are facing internal investigations
  • Violation of equal employment hiring and employment standards
  • Protecting employees who are reporting illegal conduct by their employer (whistleblowing)
  • Retaliation for filing a harassment claim or being a whistleblower
  • Being denied federally guaranteed benefits under laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), or under state laws such as the Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA)

Many employment law cases hinge on the proper documentation of the situation. Our attorneys can provide you with plain-language explanations of workplace regulations and provide honest feedback on how your case may fare. They can help you develop a compelling claim and direct it to the proper venue to get it resolved.

Protecting Your Rights Through Contract Review

Another critical area in which employees can find their rights threatened is legal documents they are required to sign. Our attorneys can review any employment contract you’re offered and suggest changes that benefit your interests. We are also happy to review noncompete agreements to ensure they’re not excessively broad, limiting your future career options.
