Oregon Bereavement Law Signed

On June 13, 2013, the Governor signed Oregon House Bill 2950, which amends the Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA) to permit eligible employees to take up to 2 weeks of protected leave to deal with the death of a family member. Leave would be for an employee to: attend the funeral or alternative service of a family member; make arrangements necessitated by the death of a family member; or to grieve the death of a family member. Only employees otherwise eligible for OFLA leave would be entitled to take protected bereavement leave. Similarly, only employers covered by OFLA (generally with 25 or more employees) would be required to provide protected bereavement leave.  The enrolled Bill can be found here: http://www.leg.state.or.us/13reg/measures/hb2900.dir/hb2950.en.html
