Oregon Workplace Protections for Victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault

Effective January 1, 2014, employers in Oregon with six or more employees must post the newly released Domestic Violence, Harassment, Sexual Assault and Stalking (DVHSAS) posting.

The new Domestic Violence, Harassment, Sexual Assault and Stalking posting is included on GovDocs’ Oregon State-on-One poster.

About the Oregon DVHAS Law

Oregon’s Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Stalking, Harassment Victims in the Workplace law protects employees who are victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or criminal harassment. The law prohibits employers from discriminating against covered employees based on their status as a victim. Employers also must provide reasonable safety accommodation in the workplace. Additionally, employers must allow eligible employees time off for:

  • Legal or law enforcement assistance
  • Ensuring the health and safety of the employee or the employee’s minor child or dependent
  • Medical treatment for or recovery from injuries caused by domestic violence, harassment, or sexual assault
  • Counseling
  • Services from a victim services provider for the employee or employee’s minor child or dependent.
