Additional Information:


The Judicial Department's practice is to begin employees at the first pay step. However, a higher starting pay rate may be considered depending upon the applicant's current salary and benefits, education, and experience. For current non-temporary OJD employees, JDPR 4.03(3)(d) states that upon promotion an employee shall normally receive a one-step pay increase from the employee’s current pay rate (not including differentials under JDPR 4.07) to the next higher rate in the salary range to which the employee is promoted. JDPR 4.03(3)(e) states that upon transfer to another position with the same salary range, the transferring employee retains the same pay rate.

Conduct Expectations

Because of the Oregon Judicial Department's role in providing justice and upholding the rule of law, employees of the Department are required to meet the highest standards of professional conduct and ethics while on the job, and also to maintain those same high standards when taking actions in their personal lives that could reflect on the Department.

Criminal History Check

The selection process includes a criminal history check using the Law Enforcement Data System (LEDS). Felony convictions may be an automatic bar to employment. Misdemeanor convictions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and may be a bar to employment if the circumstances of the crime are directly related to the duties and responsibilities of the position for which application is made.

Depending on the job, in addition to the criminal history check described above, you may be required to pass an Oregon State Police/Federal Bureau of Investigation background check and consent to finger printing by the Oregon State Police. This is necessary due to the access level and handling of sensitive and confidential data required of some jobs.

Visa Sponsorship

The Oregon Judicial Department does not offer H1-B Visa sponsorship. Within three days of hire, you will be required to complete the United States Department of Homeland Security's I-9 form confirming authorization to work in the United States.

Bilingual Pay Differential

Some employees may be assigned to use bilingual skills in the regular performance of the employee's duties. An employee who, as assigned in writing by the administrative authority, uses bilingual skill(s) (including American Sign Language) in the performance of assigned duties and who passes the bilingual skill proficiency test(s) approved by the State Court Administrator, shall receive a monthly pay differential equal to an additional step for the duration of each assignment as determined by the administrative authority.
