The Oregon Family Leave Act, ORS 659A.150 through 659A.186, requires employers with 25 or more workers to provide twelve (12) weeks of unpaid leave a year for employees to care for family members with serious health conditions, for their own serious health condition, or to care for a newborn or a child that requires home care. The federal family medical leave act requires businesses with fifty (50) or more employees to provide similar protections. When there has been a need for leave and leave has been denied or when leave has been taken and an employee has been subjected to retaliation or interference with the taking of that leave, a claim may arise against the employer. Learn your rights about leave and protect your rights from interference or retaliation. If you have any questions, contact the Rayburn Law Office to review your rights.
