Own the Definitive Guide to Oregon and Federal HR Compliance.
Every human resources professional knows the daunting task of staying up-to-date with the laws governing employer-employee relations. State and federal laws often impose different obligations on employers, and courts continually refine the way the laws must be implemented in the workplace.
HR professionals negotiate those minefields by having the resources to recognize and prevent issues before they arise and by responding to problems when prevention is not possible. We hope this manual will be your first resource in recognizing, preventing, and solving problems in your workplace.
It takes an enormous depth of knowledge and collaborative effort to produce a manual of this nature. The following attorneys are responsible for the final product: Kyle Abraham, Rebecca Boyette, Nicole Elgin, Michael Garone, Ron Guerra, Kelly Hagan, Joslyn Keating, Heidi Mason, Rich Meneghello, Walter Miller, Paul Ostroff, Tom Payne, Kathryn Roberts, Amy Robinson, Elizabeth Schleuning, Randall Sutton, Sommer Tolleson, and.

Founded in 1895, Associated Oregon Industries (AOI) quickly became a powerful voice with Legislators and regulatory agencies – a role it maintained through economic and political change. Throughout its history, it represented large and small companies from all business classifications and all regions of Oregon through all types of economic and political circumstances.
