Oregon Statutes - Chapter 658 - Employment Agencies; Farm Labor Contractors; Farmworker Camps - Section 658.195 - Giving false information or making false representations; advertisements.

(1) No employment agency shall knowingly publish or cause to be published any false, fraudulent or misleading information, representation, notice or advertisement.

(2)(a) All advertisements of an employment agency by means of cards, circulars or signs, and in newspapers and other publications, and all letterheads, receipts and blanks shall contain the name and address of the office of the employment agency.

(b) For the purposes of this subsection, it is sufficient compliance if the name actually used by the agency in its business is a registered assumed business name or the name of a bona fide corporation that clearly identifies the agency and the fact it is an employment agency.

(3) No employment agency shall knowingly give any false information or make any false promises or representations concerning an engagement or employment to any person who registers or applies for employment or help.

(4) Except in an advertisement in a section of a publication that otherwise clearly designates the advertisement as that of an employment agency, every employment agency charging or collecting a fee for services from individuals seeking or obtaining employment shall use the word “agency” or “agencies” as part of its name or after its name. However, any employment agency that, as its sole means of procuring or attempting to procure employment or engagements for others, places the qualifications of applicants before prospective employers in areas exclusively outside the United States shall not be required to include the word “agency” or “agencies” in its title or in any other identifying materials used in the conduct of its business.
