Mandatory sick leave for Oregon employers

Oregon recently joined a handful of other states across the nation to implement mandatory sick leave for employers. In general, if you have at least 10 employees in Oregon, sick leave must be paid time off; smaller employers are still required to provide sick leave, but the time off can be unpaid. Although the new law doesn’t take effect until January 1, 2016, employers should start evaluating their options now and planning how to revise their policies.

This complimentary webinar presented by employment attorneys Lorraine Hoffman and Jon Benson will provide an overview of the new law and practical tips on how to comply with the new requirements.

Topics covered in the webinar will include:

  • Covered employers, including special rule for employers with a Portland location;
  • Methods for earning paid leave;
  • Availability of paid leave for new employees;
  • Reasons for leave;
  • Intermittent leave situations;
  • Leave carryover and payout;
  • Application to collective bargaining agreements;
  • Implementation and enforcement timeline;
  • And more!

Lorraine Hoffman and Jon Benson represent Vigilant member companies throughout Oregon and help them navigate through complex legal issues. They are well-versed in all aspects of employment law and have done extensive work with companies in Portland and Eugene seeking to comply with local ordinances requiring paid sick leave.
