Oregon Amends OFLA and Paid Leave Oregon (7/1/24)

Governor Kotek signed a bill into law today harmonizing Oregon’s overlapping and confusing set of leave laws. The new framework distinguishes different types of leave events under the state’s various laws and stops those leaves from being taken concurrently. While this latest effort may simplify compliance, it expands both the total amount of leave employees may take and the circumstances under which they take it.

SB 1515 will dramatically change Oregon’s leave law landscape to provide some relief for employers and human resources personnel who manage employee leave requests. Although the Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA) is not going away entirely, Paid Leave Oregon is swallowing up most of the leave entitlements employees would otherwise have under OFLA.

PLO benefits generally do not pay employees with 100% of their wages. SB 1515 clarifies that employees must be allowed to “top off” PLO benefits by using accrued paid time off to replace 100% of their wages. As many employers know, this “topping off” of wages has become a serious administrative burden on employers.
