(Salem, OR) -- Oregon's new paid leave program takes effect next year and starting in January, businesses will begin withholding money from employee paychecks. Paid Leave Oregon will cover time off for a birth or adoption, illness or taking care of a sick family member, and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or harassment. It'll cost one-percent of an employee's salary. Employees will have to pay 60-percent and the business will pay 40-percent. Businesses can cover the entire cost.
