(Salem, OR)  --  A bill introduced in the Oregon Legislature would make it illegal for employers in the state to cut employee hours to avoid paying health benefits.  The bill is sponsored by Portland Senator Michael Dembrow, who says the measure is in response to reports he's heard that some community colleges have been advised to reduce faculty hours in order to get out of paying medical benefits to some employees.  Dembrow says the bill would not make the reduction of hours illegal because of other reasons such as poor employee performance.  The measure awaits action in committee.
