Revocation, suspension or refusal to renew license

The Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries may revoke, suspend or refuse to renew a license to act as a labor contractor upon the commissioner’s own motion or upon complaint by any individual, if:

(2) The conditions under which the license was issued have changed or no longer exist; or

Notes of Decisions

Where parties to contract were domiciled and contracted in Oregon, contractor was licensed in Oregon and only relevant event that took place outside state was performance of labor, Oregon statute governing contracts between forestry contractors and workers is applicable to ac­tion for unpaid wages.
