Oregon Employment and Labor Laws: Crime Victims, Holiday Pay, Non-compete Agreements, and More!


Ever wonder about Oregon laws on:

1) Meals and rest breaks
2) Deductions from pay
3) Student interns
4) Domestic workers
5) Apartment managers
6) Employment at will
7) Whistle blowing
8) References

You could start with the Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS), admittedly not the most user-friendly of books, but then what statutory compilation is?

I recommend instead that you start with either or both of these resources:
1) Online: Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industry (BOLI) website Fact Sheets.
2) Print: BOLI publications and “Employment in Oregon: a guide to employment laws, regulations, and practices,” by Pamela S. Knowles et al. (Public libraries and law libraries may have these books.)

But don’t end with these. You will need to look at the ORS – and law libraries will have lots of other employment law research resources.
