Attorney Profile

An attorney with Gunderson Employment Law, Erik Gunderson has almost three decades of experience representing clients in matters of employment law. In the Portland, Oregon, metropolitan area and through the state, he works with clients dealing with the following legal issues: wages and compensation matters, retaliation and whistleblower law, mandatory leave and anti-discrimination laws. He also represents freelancers, gig workers and independent contractors.

Mr. Gunderson is not afraid to aggressively pursue the responsible party for his clients, even when that is the government. One of his greatest accomplishments was assisting employers through the administration investigation of the state of California’s anti-discrimination claims process. This involved resolving dozens of lawsuits related to pregnancy, sex, race, age and disability discrimination, anti-harassment training for government entities and employers, and revision of human resources procedures and employee manuals.

At the Loyola University School of Law, Mr. Gunderson earned his Juris Doctor. He is now admitted to practice in both California and Oregon and before the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, the United States District Court for the Central District of California and the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.

He is a member of The State Bar of California and the Oregon State Bar, and a former member of the Tennessee Bar Association. Throughout his long, successful career, Mr. Gunderson has gained valuable insight into the relationship between employer and employee and uses that to improve the representation he provides to his clients.
