Oregon PFML Basics
Yes. Currently, private employers that employ one or more individuals are required to offer the new paid family and medical leave. Those who are self-employed or are sole proprietors are also eligible to opt-in to the program.
No, while private employers with one or more employee are required to offer PFML, they may choose to apply for an exemption through the Employment Department if they want to offer the same benefits or better to all employees through private insurance or a self-funded program.
The state-run program has a shared payroll-based contribution of no more than 1% of an employee’s wages to fund the program. The final rate is expected in the summer of 2022.
• Employees will pay 60% of the contributions.
• Employers with more than 25 employees will pay up to 40%.
• Employers with less than 25 employees are not required to submit their employer portion.
Wages x 60% = PFML employee payroll deduction for the 2023 calendar year. The illustrative table above shows an example if the rate is 1%.
