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.
