ORS 652.250
Public employee’s wages as affected by absence to engage in search or rescue operation

A public employee who takes part without pay in a search or rescue operation at the request of any law enforcement agency, the Department of Transportation, the United States Forest Service or any local organization for civil defense, shall not forfeit wages while engaged in an operation for a period of not more than five days for each operation. If an operation continues for more than five days, the employing agency may allow the employee to continue to take part in the operation and to receive wages for as long as the employing agency considers proper. [1959 c.46 §1]
§§ 652.110 to 652.405

Notes of Decisions

Where employer was charged with criminal violation of Massachusetts payment of wages statute for failing to pay discharged employees for their unused vacation time, employer's policy of paying discharged employees for unused vacation time was not "employee welfare benefits plan" under section 3 (1) of Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) and criminal action to enforce that policy is therefore not foreclosed by section 514 (a) of ERISA. Massachusetts v. Morash, 490 U.S. 107, 109 S. Ct. 1668, 104 L.Ed 98 (1989)

It is unnecessary to imply private right of action for employee against secured creditor in possession under ORS 652.310 to 652.405 when to do so would render provisions of ORS 652.110 to 652.250 superfluous. Stout v. Citicorp Industrial Credit, Inc., 102 Or App 637, 796 P2d 373 (1990), Sup Ct review denied
