Sept. 3, 2023, employees can start applying for benefits.
As we roll out Paid Leave Oregon, we'll keep this website updated with the latest information, so keep checking back!
Paid Leave Oregon makes it possible to take time off and have peace of mind when it matters most. Find the information you need to get ready.
Here's a quick look at Paid Leave Oregon and what it means for you.
Paid Leave Oregon is a new program that allows individuals to take paid time off for many of life’s most important moments that impact our families and our health and safety.
Paid Leave Oregon is paid for by employers and employees. Employers pay 40% and employees pay 60% of the contribution rate, which is 1 percent for 2023.
On Jan. 1, 2023, if you’re an employee, you’ll start seeing a small deduction from your paycheck. It will not be more than 0.6% of your gross wages.
Employers with 25 or more employees will also start making contributions into the program on Jan. 1, 2023. If you have fewer than 25 employees, you do not need to make contributions. But you will still need to collect and submit your employees’ share.
Through engagement and collaboration, we’re working to create a program that reflects all individuals, families and businesses in Oregon. Follow along as we work together to support people while they care for themselves and their communities.
