ORS 659A.860
Settlement agreements and orders


The terms and conditions of any order issued by the Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries under this chapter, and of any settlement agreement entered into by a respondent under this chapter and signed by a representative of the commissioner, are binding on the agents and successors in interest of the respondent.


The commissioner may relax any terms or conditions of a settlement agreement or of a cease and desist order issued by the commissioner under this chapter, if the performance of those terms and conditions would cause undue hardship on the respondent or another person and those terms and conditions are not essential to protecting the complainant’s rights.


Any person aggrieved by the violation of the terms and conditions of a cease and desist order, or of any settlement agreement signed by a representative of the commissioner, whether by a respondent or by any agent or successor in interest of the respondent, may bring a civil action in the manner provided by ORS 659A.885 (Civil action) (3) and recover the same relief as provided by ORS 659A.885 (Civil action) (3) for unlawful practices. [2001 c.621 §10]
