Know Your Rights!

A Restaurant Worker’s Survival Guide

“Know Your Rights! A Restaurant Worker’s Survival Guide” was researched, written, and published by restaurant workers in the PRWA.

The information on these pages come directly from official government websites and respected worker advocacy websites.  All sources are cited, and all information has been reviewed by a lawyer for accuracy.

This resource is only a guide to the rights you have as a worker in Oregon.  Please do not mistake it for legal counsel; it is intended to provide a general understanding of the law.  If you have specific questions, please contact a PRWA volunteer or seek legal counsel from a lawyer.  We’re not lawyers, just workers like you.
