“Paid Leave Oregon” Launches


The Oregon Employment Department’s Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance program is now “Paid Leave Oregon.”

When it launches next year, Paid Leave Oregon will allow workers to take paid time off for some of life’s most important moments. This includes:

  • Family leave – to care for a family member with a serious illness or injury, or to bond with a new child after birth, adoption or foster care placement.
  • Medical leave – during one’s own serious health condition.
  • Safe leave – for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, harassment, and stalking.
