"Frances*," the Oregon Employment Department's new, modernized system, is coming in September 2022!
Frances Online will support both Unemployment Insurance and Paid Leave Oregon, the new Paid Family and Medical Leave program. Beginning with the third quarter filing in 2022, Frances Online will replace the Oregon Payroll Reporting System (OPRS) and the Employer Account Access (EAA) portal. The system will start supporting Paid Leave Oregon contributions in the first quarter of 2023.
Frances Online will support combined payroll reporting; including Unemployment Insurance tax, Workers' Benefit Fund (WBF), State Withholding Tax, Lane and TriMet Transit taxes, and beginning in the first quarter of 2023, Statewide Transit Tax (STT) and Paid Leave contributions. In Frances Online, you will have more options for account access and filing your payroll reports as well as many new features, including assistance from a chat bot, secure messaging, viewable letters, and integration of employer tax rates.

*The new system is named in honor of Frances Perkins, the U.S. Secretary of Labor from 1933 – 1945 and the first woman to serve in a Presidential cabinet.
