Paid Leave Oregon refers to the paid family and medical leave insurance (PFMLI) program the Oregon Legislature adopted in 2019 through House Bill 2005. Such programs are fairly new – Oregon in 2019 became only the eighth state to adopt a PFMLI program – and vary significantly from state to state. Paid Leave Oregon has taken longer than expected to implement, but it finally will take effect in 2023.
On Jan. 1, employers and employees will begin to pay into the program. And on Sept. 3, employees can start applying for benefits.

OBI will update this page as the rules governing Paid Leave Oregon are adopted and adjusted.
