Wrongful Termination Attorney
Portland OR | Beaverton OR | Hillsboro OR | Clackamas OR
Being terminated for a reason that violates an Oregon law or federal law (such as racial discrimination or opposing sexual harassment) is wrongful. In these cases, you can seek remedies from your employer.
The legal action of “wrongful termination” is separate from discrimination. This claim is for those employees who are terminated (or feel forced to quit) for exercising an employment-related right. This includes protesting being sexual harassed or informing management that another employee has been discriminated against.
At Proctor Law, PC, we are bold advocates on behalf of employees in the Portland OR metro area and surrounding cities. Our Beaverton wrongful termination attorneys are not afraid to stand up to the most imposing company in pursuit of our clients’ rights in employment law disputes.
