Legislature Considering Paid Family Medical Leave

A bill is currently before the Oregon state legislature that, if passed, would create family and medical leave insurance benefits for Oregon workers.


If passed, House Bill 3087 would create the Family and Medical Leave Insurance Fund, which will be funded by employer and employee payroll contributions. This benefit will entitle Oregon workers to receive up to 12 weeks of partially paid leave in order to care for children or family members.  Workers will also be entitled to an additional 6 weeks of benefits for parental leave.
