Welcome to Whitford Law Offices

Employer Rights ▪ Discrimination Defense ▪ Management Training

 

Dealing with an employment law or labor law issue is distracting to business. Creating effective employee handbooks, workplace policies and practices, contracts and training of employees protects an employer and mitigates its liability. Unionized workforces create specific requirements and needs for an employer that can be difficult to navigate. Whitford Law Offices LLC assists employers throughout Washington and Oregon, including the counties of Marion, Multnomah, Pierce, and King, with complying with all employment and labor law requirements while also helping an employer meet its business goals.

We practice in the areas of:

  • Wage and hour law

  • Medical and military leave requirements

  • Discrimination

  • Workplace harassment

  • Labor relations and collective bargaining agreements

  • Union grievances

  • Employment handbooks

  • Performance management

  • Supervisor and employee training

  • Human resources


Our firm's attorneys have over 25 years of legal experience defending businesses in both employment law and labor law disputes. We provide a unique understanding of both the legal and business needs of an employer.


Not only do we provide businesses legal representation for wage and hour, discrimination, and wrongful termination claims, but we also provide proactive legal services such as employee training, employee handbook reviews, and Human Resources consulting.


Striving to keep you ahead of recent trends in employer-employee relations, we periodically publish an employment and labor law newsletter, The Employment Law Briefing. Like our training, our publications attempt to offer a proactive response to disputes. We are dedicated Salem employer rights lawyers and are committed to helping you preserve your business.
