Oregon Bureau of Labor & Industries — Managing Leave Laws


A single injury could be a disability, a serious health condition under family leave laws (OFLA and FMLA), and if it happened at work, it is a workers’ compensation claim. Oh, and then there’s Oregon sick time. Come September it will be covered under Paid Leave Oregon. Yikes! How do we navigate each of these laws and manage to run our organization at the same time? Relax. Take a deep breath. Help is on the way. Join us for an interactive conversation on leave laws. We will survey the various categories of protected time off, discuss strategies for tracking and administering leave, and tips for managing employee abuse of leave. Plus, lots of opportunities to ask your questions!
