New Oregon House Bill 3458 – Daily Overtime Law

Sep 25, 2017

Background:

Effective August 8, 2017, Oregon enacted a new law that amends and clarifies several existing Oregon overtime laws specific to employees of mills, factories, manufacturing establishments, sawmills, planing mills, shingle mills, logging camps, canneries, driers, and packing plants. The law invalidates previously-issued guidance from the state’s Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI), effective December 1, 2016, that instructed employers of affected employees to pay employees for both daily and weekly overtime.

General Impact to Employers:

Oregon employers in the affected industries should review the details of the law, which contains detailed information on the definitions of “manufacturing” and other terms important to determine whether an employer has affected employees.
