FMLA/OFLA Leaves

Parental or Family Medical Leaves

The Federal Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the State of Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA) provide qualified employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave per year for the birth or adoption of a child, to care for a seriously ill family member, for personal serious health conditions, and to care for a child with a non-serious health condition requiring home care (OFLA only). Within the 12-week time frame, classified employees use accrued paid leave (sick leave, vacation) before taking unpaid leave.  On FMLA-qualifying leaves, OUS will continue to pay the employer-paid portion of medical and dental premiums as long as the employees pay their own portion, if any.
