Protecting Employees Throughout Oregon Since 1981

     Founded in 1981 in Portland, Oregon, Busse & Hunt represents employees in employment discrimination and wrongful discharge cases, including cases involving race discrimination, disability discrimination, sex discrimination, national origin discrimination, age discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination and religious discrimination.  Many of our clients have been victims of retaliation because they have filed civil rights claims, filed workers’ compensation claims,  complained about unsafe working conditions, applied for family medical leave, or opposed unlawful conduct such as civil rights violations, sexual harassment, racial harassment and other unlawful activities.  Our clients include persons discriminated against for “whistleblowing” activity, such as reporting or opposing occupational safety and health (OSHA) violations, financial irregularities and fraud.  Our practice includes representing government employees in due process, equal protection, and free speech retaliation cases.

     In addition to representing employees in employment discrimination cases, we also represent employees whose rights have been violated in other ways by employers.  Our clients include victims of employer fraud or misrepresentation in the recruitment and hiring process, employees whose reputations have been defamed by a present or former employer, and those who have been the target of outrageous employer conduct, or invasion of privacy.  Busse & Hunt also represents employees whose verbal or written contract with their employer has been violated. 

     In addition to our litigation services, Busse & Hunt will review and negotiate employment contracts and severance agreements on behalf of executives and other employees.  

     Since its inception, Busse & Hunt has been a leader in the field of employment law.  Founded by Richard C. Busse as a one person employment litigation firm in 1981, Busse & Hunt is now recognized as one of the state’s leading employment law firms.  The firm has received the highest rating of “AV” by Martindale-Hubbel, an independent service that evaluates attorneys’ legal ability and ethical standards, and the firm’s attorneys have been recognized as leaders in their field by Best Lawyers in America, U.S. News, and Law & Politics’ Super Lawyers, among others.
