Paid Leave Oregon

  • Updated: December 28, 2022

    Paid Leave Oregon, also referred to as Oregon Paid Family and Medical Leave (OR PFML), is a new Oregon state leave program effective in 2023.  Program details are provided on the OR PFML poster and this website:

    Effective September 3, 2023, paid benefits are available to eligible employees up to a combined twelve (12) weeks per benefit year for the following reasons:

    • To bond following the birth, adoption or foster placement of the employee’s child within the first twelve (12) months of birth or placement;

    • To care for the employee’s own serious health condition; 

    • To care for a family member’s serious health condition; 

    • For safe leave related to the employee, or employee’s minor child or dependent experiencing sexual assault, domestic violence, harrassment or stalking.  

    Up to an additional two (2) weeks are available for limitations related to pregnancy, childbirth or related medical condition, including but not limited to lactation, for total leave not to exceed fourteen (14) weeks per benefit year. 

    Generally, OR PFML will run concurrently with the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and/or Oregon Paid Leave Act (OFLA). 

    Contributions for OR PFML are slated to start January 1, 2023.  However, PPS has elected to provide this leave program through the equivalent plan option allowed by the state.  By electing an equivalent plan through Standard Insurance, PPS does not have to remit or deduct any employee or employer contributions until September 2023.  Administration of this program will be handled by Standard Insurance who is well versed in disability and leave administration. 

    Additional details will be communicated to employees when program details are finalized.
