Ban the box legislation to take effect in Portland, OR
<![CDATA[The City of Portland, Oregon’s ban-the-box law, the Removing Barriers to Employment Ordinance, is now officially in effect. Parallel to this, the Portland City Attorney’s Office has published Administrative Rules and documents related to the new legislation. These rules, which are to be “liberally construed,” provide insight into how the City and the Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) will enforce this new law. The state of Oregon’s ban-the-box law took effect January 1 of this year, but Portland’s ordinance goes further than the state law. Portland’s ordinance applies to businesses that:
- employ six or more employees, and
- have at least one employee who spends most of her time working in the city
