Confronting allegations of age or disability discrimination

Oregon employees have the right to a workplace that is free from inappropriate treatment and aggressive behavior. Allegations of age or disability discrimination in any type of business are serious, and owners would be wise to handle these situations carefully. There is a lot at stake, including the possibility of expensive litigation, loss of reputation and other complications. 

Age discrimination is a concern for employees who are age 40 and older. Older workers should not be stereotyped, forced to retire or treated unfairly because of age. However, employment decisions a business owner may have to make for the benefit of the company may be construed as discrimination by an employee who is not happy with the changes. This can lead to a formal complaint, and eventually it may lead to a lawsuit.

Disabled individuals in the workplace have the right to certain protections, including having specific accommodations given by the employer. Employers sometimes face complications when a disabled worker believes he or she was not given the right amount of support and assistance in order to continue his or her job. This is why it is important for Oregon employers to understand these requirements and work to provide reasonable accommodations when necessary.

Age or disability discrimination are serious issues, and they can be costly for businesses. A business owner who is facing these allegations would be wise to work diligently with an experienced attorney in order to effectively confront them. With knowledgeable counsel, it is possible to navigate this complex situation in a way that avoids additional complications and pursues the best possible outcome.
