Wrongful Termination Attorneys in Portland
Seeking Justice for Clients Who Were Unlawfully Fired
Losing a job can have devastating consequences for you and your family. When the firing violates the law or a contractual agreement, prompt legal action is necessary to obtain appropriate relief. At the Bullman Law Firm, our attorneys have obtained strong results for wrongful termination clients. We have extensive knowledge of the federal and Oregon laws that govern relationships between workers and employers.
If you’ve been dismissed from your job and suspect that something improper or illegal occurred, please contact our firm by calling (503) 987-5000 for a no charge case review. We handle workplace cases at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and court.
Discrimination & Contractual Claims
In many cases, employers seek to use at-will employment rules to protect themselves from legal liability. This doctrine allows a business to fire workers without providing any justification. However, certain types of dismissals are prohibited under law.
We represent Oregon workers in wrongful termination cases involving:
- Discrimination. A firing cannot be based on an employee’s membership in a legally protected group. We are strong advocates in matters involving discriminatory firings that arise from a worker’s age, sex, sexual orientation, race, religion, ethnicity, disability or other characteristics outlined in Oregon state law and federal law.
- Retaliation. Employees should never be punished for reporting illegal conduct or dangerous conditions at their workplace. If you’re a whistleblower who has been fired, we will investigate if any connection exists between your report and your termination. We can uncover the true motivation for a dismissal even if your employer tries to invent another reason for your firing.
- Contractual Violations. Whether an agreement covers an individual employee or a whole group of workers, companies must honor the provisions relating to termination. Our diligent attorneys can review the relevant contract and take action against your former employer if they failed to abide by the terms of the agreement when releasing you.
Whatever type of work you do, you can count on our diligent lawyers to take the time to learn each relevant detail of your situation. From there, we will explain your options and seek fair compensation and other available relief through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Bureau of Labor and Industries and state and federal trial and appellate courts.
