Oregon Paid Family & Medical Leave ("Paid Leave Oregon")

November 28, 2022

Starting in 2023, all Oregon employers must allow employees to take up to 12 weeks of paid leave off in a year. In some pregnancy-related situations, employees may be able to take up to two more weeks for a total of 14 weeks.

Paid Leave Oregon is a program that will require employees to pay 60% of the contribution rate, while employers with 25 or more employees pay 40%. Employers must continue to give their employees the same health insurance benefits while on leave as when they are working. The employee must be returned to their former job or a similar position if the old job no longer exists.

There are a few different types of leave that are offered:

Family Leave

Medical Leave

Safe Leave

Paid Leave Oregon is separate from other types of leave. Employees can take Paid Leave at the same time as leave through the Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA) and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA.)

Employees cannot get Paid Leave Oregon benefits if they are receiving workers’ compensation or unemployment insurance benefits.
