Other Leaves

Family Medical Leave (FMLA and OFLA)

The Federal Medical Leave Act (FMLA ) and the Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA) are two laws designed to provide you with job protection and time off from work to care for yourself or a family member during a serious medical condition or other situation as outlined by FMLA and OFLA.

FMLA and OFLA have very similar provisions, and most often these leaves run concurrently. OFLA is somewhat more generous than FMLA, so eligibility requirements and leave allowances listed are per OFLA.

Paid Leave Oregon

Effective September 3, 2023, in compliance with Paid Leave Oregon, paid leave will be available for eligible Reed College employees. This program covers all employees of Reed except for student employees.

This program does not replace any existing leave programs such as the Oregon Family Medical Leave Act (OFLA), Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), or Oregon Sick Leave. When a request for paid leave also qualifies as leave protected under OFLA and/or FMLA, those leaves will run concurrently.
