  • Oregon's Civil Rights Division
    Scales of Justice
    The state Civil Rights Division (CRD), part of Oregon's Bureau of Labor and Industries, is tasked with defending the rights of all Oregonians to equal opportunity in employment, housing, public accommodations and career schools. The investigators, managers and support staff that make up CRD are a crucial part of BOLI's mission: to protect employment rights, advance employment opportunities, and protect access to housing and public accommodations free from discrimination.

    If you believe that you have been illegally discriminated against on the basis of a protected class or protected activity, contact CRD immediately by phone (971-673-0764) or email (crdemail@boli.state.or.us). Timelines vary depending on the type and basis of a complaint, but it's always better to act sooner to ensure that your legal rights are protected.
