Oregon's Generous Sick-Time Law

Many workers have been ordered to stay home, as all kinds of workplaces shut down to thwart the growth of the Covid-19 outbreak. 

But plenty of people still have to work in a workplace outside the home, and more than a few are known to take the risk of working while feeling ill.  Oregon's Bureau of Labor and Industries, BOLI, reminds Oregon workers that even part-timers accrue sick time under state law.  BOLI Commissioner Val Hoyle visits with details on sick time and its proper uses.  

She gave these contact points:

Phone for workers: 971-673-0761

Phone for employers: 971-673-0824

Email for all: bolita@boli.state.or.us
