Medical Leave Denial and Interference; Domestic Violence Leave

FMLA Employee Guide

The Family Medical Leave Act and the Oregon Family Leave Act provide protected leave for the serious health conditions of the employee and his or her family. Oregon law also provides leave for victims of domestic violence, harassment, sexual assault, or stalking. Whether an employee is eligible for such leave depends on factors such as length of employment, size of the employer, and other factors. If eligible, an employee is protected against retaliation and is guaranteed reinstatement to his or her former position.
