Oregon Sick Leave: What you need to know

Currently, there is no Oregon state law requiring employers to provide employees with either paid or unpaid sick leave, although many employers do grant it as an important employee benefit. However, effective January 1, 2016, all private employers and covered public employers with at least 10 employees in the state are required to provide up to 40 hours of paid sick time per year to eligible employees. Employers with fewer than 10 employees must provide unpaid sick time.
Until January 2016, if an employer promises to provide sick leave, that employer will still have a legal obligation to grant it. Employers should regularly review policy statements made in handbooks or other written materials to ensure that they accurately reflect current policies. If not, they should be changed and employees should be notified of the changes.
