Sick Leave Ordinance
July 2015 Update 

Sick Leave Ordinance will not go into effect; will be repealed on January 1, 2016

On June 22, 2015, Governor Kate Brown signed Senate Bill 454, enacting a statewide sick leave law that will go into effect on January 1, 2016. This legislation preempts local governments from setting any sick leave requirements. Preparing for this possibility, the Eugene City Council on June 17, 2015 voted to delay implementation of Eugene’s ordinance until January 1, 2016 and automatically repeal the ordinance on the same date if Senate Bill 454 was signed into law. As a result, Eugene’s Sick Leave Ordinance will not go into effect and will be formally repealed on January 1, 2016.

Below is the final version of Senate Bill 454. Note that the Bureau of Labor and Industries may adopt any rules necessary for implementation or enforcement. Staff do not anticipate providing any further updates on this project as it is now effectively completed.
