Protected Sick Time

If you haven’t heard about the Portland sick leave law yet, now is the time to take action. It was effective January 1, 2014 and requires employers with 6 or more full time workers to provide up to 40 hours per year of paid sick leave. If under 6 employees, it can be up to 40 of unpaid sick leave. Employees accrue sick leave at a rate of 1 hour for every 30 hours worked. You can find more information about this new law at the City of Portland’s FAQ page.
