Oregon's Senate Bill 454
Oregon signed into law Senate Bill (SB) 454 in June, 2015, making Oregon the fourth state to enact a statewide mandatory paid sick time law. The new law requires Oregon employers to provide sick time to employees beginning on January 1, 2016. Employees are able to use
the sick time for a wide range of illness or preventive care reasons as well as to take care of family members. Even though Oregon school districts have Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) 332.507 that already establishes sick leave requirements for education, Oregon school districts are not exempt from this new law. The policy requirement has been met with sample policy GCBDD/GDBDD - Sick Time.
