Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance

​​​Virtual Town Halls

The Oregon Employment Department hosted a series of Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance (PFMLI) virtual town halls. The intent of each town was to provide participants the opportunity to identify issues, offer ideas, raise concerns, or make suggestions relating to the program's development and the administrative rules needed to implement the program.​

We currently do not have any town halls scheduled at this time but fully expect to have them in the future. We invite you to view the previous town halls in the menu below and subscribe to our mailing list to be notified when new town halls are scheduled.
