Leave Administration

Human Resources provides enhanced service and administration for employee leaves of absence, disability benefits and ADA accommodations.

Clackamas County provides leave for family and medical reasons under the Federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA) as well as other leaves of absence. For more information about Clackamas County’s Family and Medical Leave Policy, review EPP 10 and your applicable collective bargaining agreement.

Employees may also be eligible for disability benefits due to a non-work related injury or illness. For more information review the disability insurance summary plan description (SPD) for general county employees or Peace Officers Association (POA) members.

Employees may request a reasonable accommodation when they know that there is a workplace barrier that is preventing them, due to a disability, from effectively performing their job. For more information about Clackamas County’s Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Policy review EPP 3.
