Portland Prohibits Discrimination Against Non-Religious
On February 27, 2019, the Portland City Council passed Ordinance No. 189396, which amends the city’s Civil Rights Code (chapter 23.01) by adding non-religion such as atheism, agnosticism, and non-belief to the definition of religion. As a result, employment discrimination based on non-religion is unlawful in the city of Portland.
The ordinance is effective March 29, 2019.
