The Partners Group to host a webinar focusing on the new law requiring the majority of Oregon employers to provide up to 40 hours of sick leave per year to employees beginning January 1, 2016.

The Partners Group announces a webinar to be held on Tuesday, September 15th from 10:00am – 11:00am, entitled “Preparing for Oregon’s Mandatory Paid Sick Leave Law: Effective January 1st, 2016”.

Oregon has become the fourth state, after Connecticut, California, and Massachusetts, to mandate that employers provide their employees sick leave benefits. Oregon passed legislation that requires the majority of employers with 10 or more employees to provide up to 40 hours a year of paid sick leave. The law applies to full-time and part-time hourly, salaried, commissioned and piece rate employees, and home care employees who receive payment from the Oregon Department of Human Services. Those excluded from the new law include independent contractors, employees who receive paid sick leave under federal law, certain work-training or work-study programs, and children employed by their parents.

Before the law goes into effect, it is important for employers to review their current sick leave policies to determine whether or not they will need to make changes to comply by the beginning of 2016.
