The Paid Leave Oregon website is now at paidleave.oregon.gov.

Paid Leave Oregon is a new program that allows employees to take paid leave for some of life’s most important moments. It covers leave for the birth or adoption of a child, for serious illness or injury, to care for a seriously ill family member, and for domestic violence, sexual assault, harassment or harassment.

Beginning January 1, 2023, most employees and large employers in Oregon will begin paying paid vacation premiums. Employees will pay 60% and large employers will pay 40% of the 1% contribution rate. For example, if an employee earns $1,000, the employee will pay $6 and the employer will pay $4. Small employers with less than 25 employees are not required to make payments.

Paid vacation contributions will go into a trust fund, which in turn will provide paid vacation earnings for employees beginning September 3, 2023.

Information on benefits, contributions and more can be found on the new website at paidleave.oregon.gov:

  • Information for employers, employees and the self-employed
  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • Rules on the operation of the program
  • Program Resources and Fact Sheets
  • A “Get Involved” section with:
    • A calendar listing upcoming engagement opportunities
    • A request portal for the paid leave team to present to your company or organization
    • A contact form, where anyone can submit questions and receive a response within two business days. We encourage employers, employees and the public to use this form to contact us with questions.

The new site also has Google translation features, is more accessible and mobile-friendly.

This winter, the website will be relaunched in 11 languages ​​with interactive tools for employers and employees, such as a benefits calculator.
