Get the Latest Information on Paid Family and Medical Leave Laws

UPDATE: We wanted to make you aware of an update to Oregon employer responsibilities. On the same day as our webinar, September 29, Paid Leave Oregon posted their Model Notice (Poster). Along with providing this model notice, Paid Leave Oregon adjusted the posting requirement date to be no later than January 1, 2023. A copy of this notice can be found on Paid Leave Oregon’s Resources page and is available in 12 languages. The Standard is actively creating our own version of this poster to provide to our customers, which will advise employees that their employer is providing Oregon PFML benefits under an equivalent plan with The Standard along with our contact information and instructions for filing claims.
