More (or Less) on the City of Portland Sick Leave Ordinance

Last week, efforts to enact a statewide paid sick leave law stalled in the Oregon Legislature.   As a result, only employers in the City of Portland will be required to offer paid sick leave to eligible employees beginning in January 2014.   Another result of the Legislature’s decision is that the City of Portland will now be responsible for drafting administrative rules for the new ordinance.   According to the Portland Tribune, the rules should be completed by September (although a phone call to Commissioner Fritz’s office put that date in August).
