Oregon Advertising: What you need to know

The Oregon Fair Employment Practice Act prohibits employers from issuing, printing, or circulating job advertisements (or causing to be printed or circulated) any statement, advertisement, or publication that indicates directly or indirectly any preference, limitation, specification, or discrimination based on an individual’s race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, marital status, age (over 18 years), disability, or expunged juvenile record unless based on a bona fide occupational qualification (OR Rev.

In 2012, Oregon became the second state in the country to protect applicants from discrimination who are currently unemployed. Under the law, employers are prohibited from including in job advertisements language indicating that someone who is currently unemployed should not apply or will not be considered for the position. Violators may face a civil penalty (OR SB 1548 3/27/12).
The law applies to all employers in the state, regardless of size, except for the disability provision, which applies only to employers with six or more employees (OR Rev. Stat. Sec. 659A.106).
