Section 600: Special Payment Situations
To comply with Oregon Revised Statute 652.140.
Oregon law requires that all earned wages be paid to employees who are separating from employment within specific time periods. Which time period applies depends on how the separation of employment occurs and if a collective bargaining agreement is involved.
