Oregon was among the first states to pass a law designed to prevent wage theft and sexual harassment in the janitorial industry, but the regulations that took effect this year are getting a second look from lawmakers.

“Our initial concern was we were capturing far too many people under this,” said Rep. Andrea Salinas, D-Lake Oswego, co-sponsor of a corrective bill that’s quickly working its way through the Legislature. “They had included individual employees in the licensing requirement. Then, it was capturing housekeepers. A lot of my colleagues across the state were really nervous about that.”
