Oregon Business Registry updates its list of employers with more than 20 employees
Posted September 24, 2019 12:03:03The Oregon Business Register today announced that it has released a list of the most recent employers with at least 20 employees.
The Oregon Business Registration Service (OBRS) released the list on Monday, and the new listing is now available for public inspection.
The Oregon Labor Department, the state agency that enforces the Oregon Labor Code, has said that a large percentage of companies with fewer than 20 workers are not required to pay overtime, meaning they can still count on their businesses to pay their workers for all or part of their workweek.
However, the Oregon Business Registries list includes employers with 20 or more employees, so it should be noted that not all of those employers are required to follow the law.OBRs current list of employer with 20+ employees can be found here:The list includes more than 6,000 employers, of which about 3,000 have 20 employees or more.
The OBRs data includes a number of small businesses, which can be used as a proxy for larger businesses, and so are not included in the total number of employers.
As a result, there is a considerable number of smaller employers with fewer employees than a big employer with more.
However, the majority of those businesses are small and local, and thus may not be eligible for overtime pay.
As of September 30, the OBRS had released 5,921 employers with between 15 and 20 employees, but only 1,072 of those have been included in its latest list of Employers with 20 Employees.
The list will be updated every two weeks to reflect new information.
Oberland Oregon, the company behind the Obrs database, says the list was created as a way to help employers understand the requirements of the Oregon labor code.
Obrs CEO Dan Johnson said the list is designed to help businesses better manage their labor costs and to assist them with the requirements that apply to small businesses.
The list is the result of a collaboration between OBR and the Oregon Employment Services Agency (OESA).
