Clarification of Oregon Sick Leave Rules

BOLI has set September 26, 2016 as the last day for public comment on clarification of the Administrative Rules for Oregon’s paid sick leave law.  According to BOLI, the proposed clarifications: “Add ‘employee’ definitions. Clarify ‘regular rate of pay’ in definitions. Update jointly employed employees rule. New rule explaining restoration of sick time. Clarify employer obligations if applying undue hardship provision in law. Update all division 7 rules to reflect statutory references.  Other rule changes as needed to provide clarification.”

The proposed amended rules are here: http://www.oregon.gov/boli/Legal/docs/839-007-Proposed%20Sick%20Time%20Rules.pdf

We will update the blog once the final amended rule is issued.
