The Oregon Employment Department has officially set the rates that employers and employees will have to pay for the state’s new paid family and medical leave program.
Starting in January, workers will pay 0.6% every paycheck and employers will pay 0.4%, the state decided.
“For example, if an employee made $1,000 in wages, the employee would pay $6 and the employer would pay $4 for this paycheck,” the Employment Department said in a press release.
