2017 ORS 653.611¹
Substantially equivalent policies

(1) An employer with a sick leave policy, paid vacation policy, paid personal time off policy or other paid time off program that is substantially equivalent to or more generous to the employee than the minimum requirements of ORS 653.601 (Definitions for ORS 653.601 to 653.661) to 653.661 (Preemption):

(a) Must, at a minimum, comply with the requirements of ORS 653.601 (Definitions for ORS 653.601 to 653.661) to 653.661 (Preemption) for the first 40 hours that the employer’s policy provides per year; and

(b) Need not comply with the requirements of ORS 653.601 (Definitions for ORS 653.601 to 653.661) to 653.661 (Preemption) beyond the first 40 hours that the employer’s policy provides per year.

(2) If an employee of an employer that has a policy for paid sick time, paid vacation leave, paid personal time off or other paid time off programs has exhausted all paid and unpaid leave available to the employee, the employer is not obligated to provide additional leave for paid or unpaid sick time as required by ORS 653.601 (Definitions for ORS 653.601 to 653.661) to 653.661 (Preemption). However, the employer may be obligated to provide paid or unpaid sick time by federal or state law that provides for paid or unpaid leave for similar purposes. [2015 c.537 §4; 2017 c.520 §3]
