New laws affecting Oregon employers and employees are in place this year. The Register-Guard gives a rundown of some of the most significant ones.

Senate Bill 373 provides a civil right of action for both the obligor and obligee under a child support order when the employer or other person who withholds money fails to pay over that money to the obligee within the time required by law.

Senate Bill 519 prohibits employers from taking adverse employment action against employees who decline to attend meetings or participate in communications concerning the employer’s opinions about religious or political matters. The law requires employers to post a notice of the prohibition. Displaying a copy of the bill should satisfy the posting requirement. This law is being challenged in court.
