Oregon’s newly implemented paid leave policy is off to a strong start. The initiative, which has been accepting applications since Monday, entitles qualified individuals—including victims of sexual assault or domestic violence—to up to 12 weeks of paid time off for family or medical needs.
While modifications are expected in light of early feedback, the move has gone without a hitch. Regardless of whether they worked full- or part-time, residents must have made at least $1,000 in the previous year to be eligible.
Users of the program are free to take any amount of time off, whether it be one day or a whole week. It is necessary to give notice in advance, either one month for planned activities or 24 hours in advance for emergencies.
Applications are handled through the website of the Oregon Employment Department, which takes 30 to 60 minutes. Visit paidleave.oregon.gov to learn more.
