Labor bureau seeks comments on paid sick time rules
The Bureau of Labor and Industries is asking for public comment on a proposal that would change Oregons new mandatory sick leave law.
The legislation requires employers to provide up to 40 hours annually of paid or unpaid sick time depending on the size and location of the employer. But although the law was passed in 2015 with Senate Bill 454, employers have recently asked for further clarification to figure out who qualifies for paid sick leave under the law.
So a committee was convened with a number of industry representatives to advise BOLI on drafting new rules, particularly those governing piece-rate workers (who are paid per unit they produce rather than for the hours theyve worked), as well as joint employer liability (when an employee works for two or more employers).
