Oregon Labor Commissioner responds to reports of discrimination at Oregon hotels – April 30, 2020
Oregon’s Bureau of Labor and Industries is hearing reports that Oregon hotels are denying access to people experiencing homelessness and to those they believe have COVID-19. Some establishments are stopping people from staying in their rooms, rejecting room payments made on an individual’s behalf by advocacy organizations, or removing people from their premises.
“People experiencing homelessness and those who are sick deserve and have the right to access public businesses without discrimination,” says statewide Labor Commissioner Val Hoyle. “Oregon law is very clear.”
