AARP Oregon 2023 Legislative Agenda

This session AARP Oregon, with more than 500,000 Oregon members, will again be advocating on a broad range of issues important to Oregonians 50+ and their families.  We are committed to helping older workers by fighting ageism and discrimination in the workplace, supporting family caregivers and protecting nursing home residents, fighting to lower prescription drug prices, and fostering livable communities with affordable and appropriate housing for older individuals. 

Learn about HB 2800: Workplace Age Discrimination
While Oregon law prohibits discrimination, the reality of enforcing that prohibition falls short. Despite the legislature’s commitment to prohibit workplace discrimination, courts have taken an extremely narrow view of age discrimination claims compared to other kinds of workplace discrimination claims. This allows bad actors to get away with discriminating against older workers, effectively leaving victims with no recourse. In 2023, the Oregon legislature can fix this and return equity to Oregon’s workplace discrimination law. Learn about how HB 2800 would protect older workers.
