Many cases of Oregon nursing home abuse went unreported

There are a large number of nursing homes that do not provide adequate care for residents. And sadly, many cases of abuse and neglect at such facilities goes unreported.

What are your rights after experiencing workplace retaliation?

After enduring harassment or learning of an unhealthy practice at work, many may wish to report the incident to hold the at-fault parties accountable. However, something often stands in the way: the threat of retaliation in the workplace.

Both Oregon and federal law prevent employers from retaliating against employees. Unfortunately, this does not always deter employers. Across the country, research shows that 65 percent of employees filing complaints alleging sexual harassment lose their jobs within just one year. As an employee, you need to know your rights against retaliation.

What does child abuse look like?

Child abuse is wrong, whether it is physical, emotional, sexual or neglect. In many cases, the abuser is someone the child knows and trusts.

Therefore, discovering a child you love has been abused can be difficult. They are often ashamed about what happened or fearful of consequences from someone they care for, and they may be reluctant to offer information on their own.
