2011 ORS § 292.033¹
Advances of regular and terminal salary or wages

(1) As used in this section:

(a) Regular salary advance means any portion of the accrued salary or wages payable to an officer or employee who has filed a written request for the approval of such advance with the administrative head of the state agency by which the employee is employed.

(b) State agency means a state agency using the procedure provided in ORS 292.010 (Salaries of state officers and employees payable monthly or biweekly) to 292.036 (Rules).

(c) Terminal salary or wages means the salary or wages payable to an officer or employee who is terminating the office or employment with the state and includes cash payments made in lieu of accrued vacation time.

(2) Where a state agency does not have an alternative procedure for advances of regular salary or wages or terminal salary or wages, the Oregon Department of Administrative Services may make advances of regular salary or wages or terminal salary or wages to an officer or employee of a state agency by check drawn on the Joint Payroll Account. The provisions of ORS 292.032 (Filing paid checks) apply to such checks. The department shall require the officer or employee to whom the advance is made to execute an assignment of regular salary or wages or terminal salary or wages in the amount of the advancement. The assignment shall be made to the department. The assignment shall have priority over any other claims against the regular salary or wages or terminal salary or wages owed to the officer or employee by the state. The department shall withhold the amount specified in the assignment from the next salaries or wages or the terminal salary or wages payable to such officer or employee, and the amount so withheld shall be credited to the Joint Payroll Account in payment of the advance made under this section.
