Employment Discrimination

Employment discrimination cases are a serious matter. They can tarnish an employer's reputation, and a lengthy case can be a significant distraction to a company's management and employees. Such disputes can also be expensive, because legal fees add up and settlements can be significant.

At Chenoweth Law Group, P.C., we have the knowledge and experience to effectively represent companies in employment discrimination disputes. With offices in Portland, we handle cases in Oregon, Washington, and California — we are one of the region's leading law firms.

What Is Employment Discrimination?

Employers may not discriminate against an employee on the basis of gender, race, religion, age, disability, or national origin. A series of federal laws protect these groups from unfair treatment, and additional laws may exist in your state. Examples of discrimination include:

  • Unfair hiring practices
  • Unequal pay for equal work
  • Biases in promotion, demotion, or training opportunities
  • Harassment
  • Unjustified firing

Our attorneys have a thorough understanding of anti-discrimination laws in the states we serve, and can develop effective defense strategies customized to meet the needs of your company.
