G-32-21 COCC Sick Leave and Oregon Sick Time Policy

Central Oregon Community College follows Oregon Sick Time Law and provides paid sick time or sick leave to employees as required by Oregon law.

Sick Time: SB 454, ORS 653.601 to 653.661, OAR 839.007
Sick Leave: ORS 332.507

Benefited COCC employees earn COCC sick leave. COCC sick leave for benefitted employees qualifies as a substantial equivalent under Oregon Sick Time law under ORS 332.507.

Non-benefited COCC employees earn Oregon sick time under SB 454, ORS 653.601 to 653.661, OAR 839.007.

Student employees who receive Federal Work Study financial aid for Work Study positions and COCC Residence Hall Community Assistants who receive room and board as payment are exempt from Oregon Sick Time law. For employees who are paid by a stipend or measurement other than hours, a consistent and reasonable method will be used to calculate and convert the payment to hours.
