Sick Leave Ordinance
Project Update, January 2015 – The proposed Administrative Rules that will implement the adopted Sick Leave Ordinance were published on January 6, initiating a 15 day comment period. The proposal was based on the feedback received from the public meetings in the fall of 2014 as well as other comments received. The City is inviting your comments and feedback on the draft rules by January 21. The City Manager will then adopt the Administrative Rule by January 31 as proposed or as modified in response to the comments received.

The proposed Rule may be reviewed at the City Manager’s Office, 125 E. 8th Avenue, Eugene, Oregon, 97401, during normal business hours. It is also available here.

Comments or objections to the proposed Rule provisions must be submitted in writing to Jason Dedrick, 125 E. 8th Avenue, Eugene, Oregon, 97401, or via e-mail to not later than 5:00 p.m. on January 21, 2015.
