Proposed clarifications to Oregon Sick Leave rules

rebecca_watkinsActing on employer requests, BOLI has proposed additions and amendments to its rules about state sick leave. The proposed changes address the definition of “employee” and “employer”, the calculation of rate of pay for employees working on a piece-rate or commission basis, the responsibilities of joint employers (temporary or PEO situations), and undue hardships. The proposed rules can be viewed at http://www.oregon.gov/boli/Pages/legal/H_Notices.aspx . BOLI will accept comments on the proposed rules through September 26, 2016. Comments may be emailed to paloma.sparks@state.or.us or Marcia.L.Ohlemiller@state.or.us or mailed to Marcia Ohlemiller c/o BOLI, 800 NE Oregon St. #1045, Portland OR 97232.
