Oregon is an at-will employment state. An employee can be disciplined, demoted, or discharged (an "adverse employment action") for any reason or no reason, so long as it is not an unlawful reason.

Unlawful reasons for adverse employment actions include, but are not limited to: discrimination based on age, race, color, sex, gender, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, marital status, an expunged juvenile record; retaliation for opposing an unlawful employment practice, making a good faith report of a violation of the law, brought a civil proceeding against the employer, testified in good faith at a civil or criminal proceeding, inquired about or took medical leave, requested a disability accommodation.

Consultations and teleconferences are by appointment only.
