A: You should consult an employment attorney related to potential violations of the Family Medical Leave Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Defamation claims are state-law specific, subject to limitations imposed by rights contained in the First Amendment. You should narrow your focus to employment law attorneys who practice law in Oregon.
