Tonkon Torp labor and employment attorney Christopher Morehead has been elected to the Portland Workforce Alliance (PWA) Board of Directors. The PWA is an independent nonprofit that works with local employers to educate students about career opportunities, boost Oregon’s graduation rate, and build a resilient, prosperous, and well-educated workforce.
“I am excited to join the Portland Workforce Alliance board and to offer my hands-on support of their work,” shared Morehead. “By bridging the gap between education and career opportunities we can inspire and guide students, strengthen our community’s educational foundation, and cultivate a future workforce equipped for ongoing success.”
Morehead’s labor and employment practice is focused on litigating and advising on employment matters for companies of all sizes, ranging from mom-and-pop shops to global Fortune 50 employers. He regularly defends corporate clients in single-plaintiff employment cases in Oregon and Washington courts, and has substantial experience assisting national employers with multi-state compliance issues and appearing on their behalf before administrative agencies across the country.
