A man who formerly headed a semi-independent body responsible for employing Oregon prison inmates is accusing the Oregon Department of Corrections of wrongful termination, discrimination and retaliation in a recently filed lawsuit. The former head of Oregon Corrections Enterprises claims a state DOC director fired him after he made complaints about the agency. He is seeking to collect $1.5 million in damages through the civil litigation.
An employment dispute at a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant location in Oregon has sprouted civil litigation between a former manager and the store. The man, who used to serve as a manager at the restaurant's location, said that the owner fired him when he stood his ground and contested the fact the restaurant was serving customers rotten food.
