According to the State of Oregon, an employer who does not specifically request a certain type of degree for employment cannot discriminate against an applicant who has a religious degree from an unaccredited (or accredited) school and uses it to meet the BA/BS educational requirement. The same applies for tuition reimbursement programs that are not requiring a particular type of degree. This is a step in the right direction but should be followed up with the same status given to any unaccredited degree from a legitimate school. In other words, if an employer requires a BA/BS degree for a entry level position the employer would be prohibited from disqualifying a candidate based on an unaccredited degree. Best of all from my perspective (as an employer) is to let us determine the qualifications of our employees ourselves without any state interference or babysitting. We don't need "Big Brother" state to look over our shoulders and make sure we are hiring the right people.
