Calculate your contribution
Here’s a quick and simple way to estimate how much you contribute to Paid Leave Oregon.
How to calculate your contribution
Employees pay 60% of the total 1% contribution rates.
For example, if your wages total $1,000 for the pay period, you would pay $6 (60% of 1%) as your portion of the contribution for that pay period. The maximum employee wage for contributions is set at $132,900 for 2023. You do not have to pay contributions for wages beyond the maximum wage.
If you are self-employed, you can choose Paid Leave Oregon coverage. Your coverage would be based on your net income from self-employment (income after expenses) from the prior year’s tax return. For example, if your net income from self-employment from the prior year’s income tax return was $10,000, you would pay $60 (60% of the total contribution rate of 1%) for the year. Your portion of the contribution payments are due quarterly, so you would pay $15 per quarter to the Oregon Employment Department.
Large employers with 25 or more employees pay 40% of the total 1% contribution rate on maximum wages of $132,900 for each employee (for 2023). For example, if you have 25 or more employees and $1 million in payroll, you would pay $4,000 (40% of 1%) per year and your employees would pay $6,000 (60% of 1%) per year. This is a total contribution of $10,000 for the year. Use the contributions calculator to estimate how much you'll pay. Reminder: Small employers with fewer than 25 employees are not required to pay the employer contribution.
Enter the amount of wages for a pay period. For example, if an employee makes $1,000 a month, enter $1,000 and click on Calculate. The calculator will give you the estimated employer and employee contributions, and the total contribution.
