Wrongful Termination in Oregon
Insight from a Proven Portland Employment Attorney
Oregon is an "at-will" state. An employer may terminate an employee at any time for any reason or for no reason at all. Whatever the reason given, state law mandates that the termination must be legally valid. Individuals fired for illegal reasons may sue for wrongful termination damages.

Types of Cases We Handle
Unfortunately, many employers use the "at-will" designation to unfairly terminate employees, even if that reason is illegal. At Mitra Law Group, we work with experienced and highly skilled investigators to expose their wrongdoing make them pay. Together, we can ascertain the facts of your case and construct an effective legal strategy.
Our Portland wrongful termination lawyers can provide tactical and aggressive representation to combat many types of unjust firings, including:
- Violation of written promises: Even though Oregon is an at-will state, it is illegal to disregard written promises given to an employee.
- Implied promises: Verbal promises or assurances of employment may be regarded the same as written promises.
- Unfair actions of an employer: If an employer's actions were designed to coerce an employee into quitting, or to limit the collection of promised commissions or bonuses, they may be liable for wrongful termination.
- Violating public policy: It is illegal for an employer to punish an employee for performing civic duties such as voting, serving on a jury or in the military, or notifying authorities of a danger to public safety.
- Discrimination: Employers may not discriminate in any way, nor base a termination on gender, race, creed, age, disability, marital status, medical condition, or sexual orientation.
- Retaliation: Terminations must not be a form of punishment for reporting injuries, abuse, or other illegalities performed by the employer.
