BOLI ISSUES SICK LEAVE RULES – NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO WEIGH IN!

rebecca_watkinsOn January 1, 2016 all employers in Oregon (with a few exceptions) will be required to provide protected sick leave to all employees. The Bureau of Labor & Industries has now issued its rules regarding sick leave. The proposed rules can be found here. If you have questions about the rules (or questions that you think should be answered but aren’t in the proposed rules) there are two upcoming public hearings you can attend:

Deschutes Service Center, at 11:30 a.m. on 10/20/15

Portland State Office Building, at noon on 10/26/15

If you are unable to attend, you can also provide comments to Marcia Ohlemiller via email at Marcia.L.Ohlemiller@state.or.us. Comments must be received by 5:00 p.m. on 10/30/15.
