Proposed HB 2950 Expands Oregon Family Leave to include 2 weeks of Bereavement Leave

For employers covered by OFLA (generally, employers with 25 or more employees), there is proposed legislation that would amend OFLA to permit employees to take up to 2 weeks of unpaid leave to “deal with the death of a family member.” Employees must take bereavement leave within 3 months after the death of the family member or the discovery of the death of the family member and the leave taken is counted toward the employee’s 12 weeks of leave under OFLA.

We will continue to monitor this proposed law and provide updates on any significant developments. Meanwhile, if you want to read the text of HB 2950, you can find it here:
