Employment

Disability Rights Oregon provides information, referral, and advocacy services for Oregonians who are having a disability-related legal problem related to employment and licensing for employment.   We can provide assistance to people requiring reasonable accommodations to maintain their jobs; we do not handle failure to hire or termination cases.

 

We also administer Oregon’s Client Assistance Program (CAP), which helps people who are having difficulty seeking or receiving vocational rehabilitation services from Oregon’s Office of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (OVRS), Independent Living (IL) centers, Oregon’s Commission for the Blind, and tribal programs. Read more about our CAP program here.
