Spring Has Sprung!

The 2017 Oregon Legislative Session officially ended on July 10. So what new laws do employers have to look forward to in the coming months?

While several new bills have passed and signed into law, there are four major new laws of which employers should be aware. Click on each of the links below to read a full description of the law:

  1. The Oregon Equal Pay Act
  2. The Fair Workweek Act (or Predictive Scheduling Law)
  3. Amendments to the Oregon Sick Leave Law
  4. Amendments to daily overtime and maximum hours worked rules in certain industries

While a few other bills also passed, these are the main ones to be aware of. In the coming months, we will look to any rulemaking BOLI engages in to provide clarification on these laws. We will keep you updated on any of those developments, and we will probably be conducting classes on some of these laws once we know more.

So stay tuned, and give us a call if you have any questions in the meantime.
