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, give us a call for a free consultation. Contact us at (503) 232-9280.
As an employee or as a 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 Keaney Law, we handle EEOC claims and cases, the majority of which fall under one or possibily more of these following categories:
• wrongful termination
• hostile work environment
• harassment (including sexual harassment)
• family medical leave
The EEOC enforces federal laws which prohibit discrimination against someone for reasons relating to the following:
• age (over 40, or over 18 in Oregon)
• national origin
• genetic information (family medical history)
If you feel discriminated against at work and that you might have an EEOC claim, call us, and we can discuss your specific situation during your free legal consultation. Please contact us at (503) 232-9280, or you can e-mail us at moc.y1503100002enrot1503100002tases1503100002run@t1503100002catno1503100002c1503100002.
