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.
