It’s Time for Paid Family & Medical Leave

This week, the Oregon Legislature introduced the Family and Medical Leave Insurance (FAMLI) Act, HB 3087. This bill is the product of intensive work by our Time for Oregon coalition – a group of community advocacy groups, labor organizations, public health organizations, senior groups, children’s groups, and more.

If passed, the FAMLI Act will create a statewide paid family and medical leave insurance program that ensures every working Oregonian will have paid time away from work to welcome a new child, to recover from a serious illness, or to care for a loved one who is recovering from a serious illness.

Whether it’s the birth of a child, the serious illness of a spouse, or the end-of-life for a parent – we all need time to care for our families. Caring for a family is important work, and shouldn’t mean losing wages or compromising our economic security. That’s why we need the FAMLI Act to pass.

Will you take a moment to call or email your legislator to ask them to support the FAMLI Act (HB 3087)? Take action today here.
