EEOC – Equal Employment Opportunity

Under federal laws, enforced by the EEOC, you have certain rights as an employee. If you feel those rights have been violated, please give us a call for a free consultation.  Contact us at (503) 232-9280.

As an employee or potential employee, you have rights, ones you may not even be aware you have!

The EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) is the government agency that is in charge of interpreting and enforcing federal laws that prohibit discrimination. These employment laws apply to all federal government agencies, as well as most unions, employment agencies, and employers who have over 15 employees.

At Kevin Keaney, P.C. we handle EEOC claims and cases, the majority of which fall under one or possibly more of these following categories:
• wrongful termination
• retaliation
• hostile work environment
• harassment (including sexual harassment)
• pregnancy
• family medical leave
• discrimination

The EEOC enforces federal laws which prohibit discrimination against someone for reasons relating to the following:
• race
• color
• religion
• age (over 40, or over 18 in Oregon)
• national origin
• sex
• disability
• genetic information (family medical history)

If you feel discriminated against at work and that you may have an EEOC claim, call us, and we can discuss your specific situation during your free legal consultation. Contact us at (503) 232-9280, or you can e-mail us at .
