  • Calling a sick employee at home

    What does the Oregon Law say about an employer calling a sick employee at home about work or personal issues. Our employment policy allows for paid sick time. The employee has followed the policy and has not left any tasks undone. A supervisor in a different department thinks it is okay to call employees at home when they are ill to follow up on day to day tasks. I say it is a violation of labor laws. Please clarify. Thanks

    You are incorrect. The law does not address this situation with very limited exceptions.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
