It's About to Get a Whole Lot Better to Be Sick in Portland

On Jan. 1, the new paid sick leave ordinance goes into effect in Portland, Ore. One of the organizations that supported the passage of the new rules, Family Forward Oregon, has created a helpful new FAQ to answer questions about the new law's rollout. Any employee who works 240 or more hours a year in the city of Portland will earn paid or unpaid sick leave, depending on the size of the company. The FAQ answers 16 questions about the new rules, from eligibility questions to how and when the leave can be used.
