Questions about Oregon’s Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance (PFMLI) program?

The Oregon Employment Department will administer this new leave program and is starting the process of outlining rules. Employers will begin collecting/paying contributions on January 1, 2023. If you are an employer or business owner concerned with how this program will work, this is an opportunity to share your concerns and provide input. On May 17, 2022, a Rulemaking Advisory Committee (RAC) meeting will be held to discuss rules pertaining to collecting contributions to the program, overpayments, and how employers can opt out of the state program by getting approval of their own equivalent plans. If interested in attending, follow the link below and register:

Tuesday, May 17, 2022, 9 a.m.–noon; register online.

Alternatively, you can provide written comments. Submit those to by May 18th at 5:00 p.m.
