Oregon Paid Leave Rate Set At 1%

(Salem, OR) -- The Oregon Employment Department has set the rate for Paid Leave Oregon. It's a new program that offers up to 12 weeks of paid time off for family, medical and "safe" leave. Workers will be taxed one-percent of their income with employers paying 40-percent and the employee paying 60-percent. The employer can pay the entire amount as a benefit. On one-thousand dollars in wages, the employee would pay six dollars and the employer will pay four dollars. The new fee takes effect next January.
