Oregon’s New Paid Family and Medical Leave Law: What Employers Need to Know - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to comply with Oregon’s newly enacted paid family leave law.

The national push to provide employees with paid family leave marches on. And, Oregon has just joined the ranks of seven other states (plus the District of Columbia) with a new paid leave law that covers all employers. The law provides not just paid medical and family leave, but also paid safe leave for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking.

Once the new law takes effect, employers will be required to allow up to 12 weeks of paid family leave annually. And, additional leave time may be available on account of pregnancy and childbirth.

Use this on-demand webinar with Nicole Elgin, an Oregon-based labor and employment attorney with Barran Liebman LLP on how to get up to speed on the new Oregon-based paid family and medical leave requirements.

You’ll learn:

  • When Oregon’s paid family leave law takes effect and the checklist of policy- and procedure-related practices to set into motion ahead of the new law’s effective date
  • The additional leave benefits pregnant employees and new mothers may be entitled to under the new law
  • What you may and may not request in support of a request for paid family leave
  • Who’s covered under the state’s new family leave law, and how much leave time those covered employees will be entitled to (and under what circumstances)
  • Practical strategies for developing paid family leave policies and administration practices that won’t lead to legal landmines
  • How Oregon’s new paid family leave law stacks up against legislation already in place in other jurisdictions, including California, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Washington
