G-32-21.2 Oregon Sick Time Usage

New eligible employees will start accruing sick time hours as defined under the Oregon Sick Time requirements upon their first day of employment, but must wait 90 days before using any accrued sick leave to be paid for qualified absences as of their 91st day of employment.

Although employees covered by SB 454 may not otherwise qualify for the 12-week leave provisions through the Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA), sick leave accrued may be used for the following purposes:

  1. For the employee's mental or physical illness, injury or health condition; need for medical diagnosis, care or treatment of a mental or physical illness, injury or health condition; or need for preventive medical care;
  2. For care of a family member with a mental or physical illness, injury or health conditions; care of a family member who need medical diagnosis, care or treatment of a mental or physical illness, injury or health condition; or care of a family member who needs preventive medical care;
  3. Family leave definition: ORS659A.159 https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/659A.159
