    Beginning January 1, 2016...

    All employers with 10 or more employees (​at least 6 for employers located in Portland) in Oregon must provide up to 40 hours of paid leave per year. 

    Employers with less than 10 employees (less than 6 for employers located in Portland) must provide up to 40 hours of unpaid protected sick time.

    The text of the law is available here, and a copy of the final administrative rules can be found here.




Make sure you know how this law will impact your business!

BOLI's Technical Assistance for Employers unit can help employers get up to speed with the new requirements:
Answers to frequently asked questions on sick leave are available on their webpage and a personal representative is just a phone call or email away.
Employees accrue 1 hour of sick time for every 30 hours worked or 1-1/3 hours for every 40 hours worked.
It is unlawful for an employer to take retaliatory personnel action for exercising rights or attempting to exercise rights under Oregon's sick time law.
If you believe your rights under this new law have been violated, contact one of our screeners, or consider filing a complaint with BOLI.
