Potential Rule Change for Eligibility under the Oregon Military Family Leave Act

November 9, 2012, is the last day for public comment on a proposed change to the Oregon Military Family Leave Act (OMFLA).  The change would permit employees to take OMFLA leave even if they are not eligible for protected leave under the Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA).  Currently, to be eligible for OMFLA, which permits an employee to take up to 14 days of unpaid leave in connection with a spouse or domestic partner’s deployment, an employee must also be eligible for leave under OFLA.  If the new rule is adopted, an employee need not be eligible under OFLA in order to take protected leave under OMFLA.  The proposed rule also provides that an eligible employee is entitled to take up to 14 days of unpaid leave for each deployment.  Stay tuned for news on whether the new rule is adopted. http://www.oregon.gov/boli/Legal/docs/Memo_permnotice_OMFLA_Div9_2012.pdf
