If you’re interested in using a current PTO policy as a Paid Leave Oregon equivalent plan, you can apply for approval to offer an employer-administered equivalent plan. The Oregon Employment Department will accept applications for equivalent plans for Oregon’s Paid Leave program beginning in September 2022. Information on equivalent plans for benefits under Oregon’s Paid Leave program is online. Please note that any equivalent plan for benefits must offer benefits that are equal to or greater than those provided under the state Paid Leave plan and must allow leave for all the same reasons as well. This means you may need to update your current PTO policy to meet the requirements of an equivalent plan.
